Austin Gingerbread House Workshops

Gingerbread Houses are one of the iconic symbols of the holiday season.  Their origin is a bit muddled but they were common throughout Europe as far back as the 11th Century.  The great bard himself, William Shakespear once wrote, "And I had but one penny in the world. Thou should'st have it to buy gingerbread."

The city of Austin, Texas is enjoying a month long Gingerbread House Workshop sponsored by  The workshops are being held at the Austin Children's Museum (201 Colorado St.) and the cost is $30/$35 Member/Non-member per gingerbread house (3 people per house; includes Museum admission) or $25 for a take-home kit (everything you need to build a house except the sugar and water icing), available in the Museum Store.
