The smell of gingerbread in the air and some healthy competition…what else could get you more excited for the holidays? I’m rambling on about the upcoming Gingerbread Castle Competition at the Higgins Armory Museum to be held Saturday, December 18 from 10 am – 3 pm .

So far the current list of participants include Darby’s Bakery, Sweet Pastry Shop & Dessert Bar, Sodexo, Worcester Technical School – Culinary Arts Department, The Cake Lady and Dianne Rockwell. These gingerbread castles will be voted on by visitors to the Museum that day – and we’re sure to be astounded by their mastery of the gingerbread! Winner will be announced at 3pm. that day.

Also scheduled from 1 – 2 pm enjoy the sounds of the holiday season as the Master Singers of Worcester stroll the museum acapella caroling –  all in period dress; Children’s Craft – Decorate and enjoy your very own delicious gingerbread cookie; Holiday shopping at its best – Members Only – double your discount in our museum store.

If you are a food professional, caterer or business and would be interested in showing off your gingerbread culinary mastery, please contact Joanne Roy Coordinator of Special Events and Venue Rentals at the Higgins Armory, at  508-853-6015 ext. 26.
