Gingerbread Gallery

Every autumn, the Erie Canal Museum in downtown Syracuse holds a gingerbread house contest. All ages are invited to submit a confectionary creation, with winners chosen for each of four categories: Confectioners Competition, Youth, Family/Group, and Canal Themed. This year’s houses are very imaginative, drawing their inspiration from a construction crew, a backyard shed, a beaver dam, a Central New York aquaduct, and even the Wizard of Oz. Fondant icing is rampant, as are any number of types of yummy shingling. (Chocolate discs, anyone?) The exhibit closes on January 3, so make sure to pay a visit before these sweets are gone!

  1. WoW – got a sugar rush just looking at these! How beautiful!

  2. Great pictures, Meb!! In middle school our Girl Scout troop made a gingerbread replica of Wellwood… and then won the people’s choice category because we stuffed the ballot box when we visited the exhibit : D

  3. :o) So happy I got to see this, because I didn’t make it there this year …
