Helping Homes

We donated some gingerbread houses to a Mount Vernon Middle School "Life Skills" class, and the students made such fun and unique houses!

Thanks to all the students for sharing their unique creations with us, and Happy Holidays everyone!

More Gingerbread Houses!

Marina, a long-time candy fan who has been shopping at the Confectionery for 20 years, decorated this gorgeous gingerbread house with grandson Mark. Her choice of high-end decorations (the Santa frosting decoration atop the chimney, the Moonstruck polar animal truffles) and all the care that went into the spectacular frosting detail make it (almost) too beautiful to eat!


Crafty Candy Girl Connie made this house --- check out her cinnamon square chimney detail!

Here's something Candy Girl Alexa made at home -- a Gingerbread Candy Girl, complete with pink polka dot apron! Thanks to everyone for sharing their creative holiday creations with us!
