Before the Christmas break the Culinary Arts class paired up with Project Lead the Way for a Gingerbread House Challenge. It's a holiday tradition for many, but let's face it: Building a gingerbread house can be complicated and frustrating. But if anyone can make this time-honored culinary tradition a little less painful and a lot more fun, it’s the culinary students.

Project Lead the Way students helped with putting our building and design skills to the test. They helped the culinary students through the design process. It was then up to the culinary students to bring their vision to life. A full week was dedicated to creating each step of the house by hand. The dough, frosting and molds were all made by students. They then used a wide assortment of candies to give the creative finishing touches that made each team’s project so unique.

Teachers and IVVC students judged the final products and chose the overall winner. Josh M. and Faith W. of Sandwich took 1st place for their Cabin in the Woods design. The attention to detail and hard work that students put into these bakery design masterpieces will hopefully set the standard for a wonderful holiday tradition for years to come.
