Instructed by Patricia Moroz of Starlight Custom Cakes. 12-3pm. $55 per person.
You have never been to a gingerbread house decorating class like this before! Held in the Hartstone Inn kitchen, everyone will be provided with a beautiful New England style gingerbread farmhouse to decorate. Unlike the houses that children normally decorate with candy, we will be decorating these houses using a variety of elegant lace patterns, damask and Christmas floral prints and more. Everyone will be provided with a tray full of edible sugar snowflakes, Christmas wreathes, holly leaves and berries, leaping reindeer and many more decorations to be used for creating their festive gingerbread house. Towards the end of the class, each will be covered with delicate icicles. Every house will be attached to a base with a center hole cut out in the base. Although not essential, a small electric candle type light can be placed inside of the house, if desired. All houses have windows that have been cut out so that the houses can be lit from the inside making them even more beautiful during the holiday season! No experience required and this will be a casual and fun class! Weekend packages start at $367 and include two nights lodging, breakfast each morning, afternoon cookies and tea, a gourmet candlelit dinner for two and enrollment for one in the cooking class. Additional enrollment into the cooking class is $55 per person.
Note: If you are traveling by car from out of town, these houses are very strong and can easily be transported in a car.
