Upcoming gingerbread class turns Alexandria architecture into holiday treat

An event next month will translate a lesson in local historic architecture into sweet treats and load-bearing cookies.

Gadsby’s Tavern Museum (134 N Royal Street) is hosting a gingerbread decorating event on Sunday, Dec. 18. The Office of Historic Alexandria said the confectionary class celebrates the creative concepts of close-by construction.

“Learn about local architecture as you decorate a flat “façade” (front) based on historic buildings around Gadsby’s Tavern Museum,” the city’s website said. “Ticket includes one flat gingerbread façade, all the supplies needed to decorate, and admission to the museum. Inspiring samples highlight architectural details you can recreate in candy and search for in the neighborhoods on your way home.”

The event works for both families or adult groups, with up to four people welcome per $25 ticket. Hot cider is also available for purchase during the event.
