Sugary Creations To Host Gingerbread House Workshop

Monday, November 8, 2010

Sugary Creations will host a Gingerbread House Workshop on Dec. 18 in the Sugary Creations party room at 3626 Ringgold Road.

Participants will receive a gingerbread house and an array of ornamental and delicious elements for decking the house.

“The usual sweet and savory treats such as M&Ms, gumdrops and shredded wheat, etc will be available to decorate the house in the way they want,” said Sugary Creations owner Catherine Spears.

The Gingerbread House Workshop will last from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. Cost is $30 per house; a light lunch of sandwiches and fruit will be served.

“These houses are wonderful as decorations for the season, and they also make excellent gifts for family and friends,” Ms. Spears said.

Register for the workshop by Dec. 15 by calling 421-3108, emailing sweets@sugarycreations.com or by stopping by the bake shop.

Sugary Creations is a full service bakery, offering cookies, cakes, muffins, scones and cupcakes. Offerings range from old-time favorites, such as carrot cake and red velvet cake, to unusual items like the Old Gray Cat - a chocolate malt cake covered with white chocolate icing.

The bakery offers over 150 available shapes of sugar cookies, as well as a number of sugar-free selections.

Ms. Spears is the great-granddaughter of Miss Mary Bobo, the late owner of Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House in Lynchburg, Tn., famous for its home-style southern cooking.

Sugary Creations is open Wednesday-Saturday from 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m. or by appointment. For more information visit www.sugarycreations.com.
