NEW: Higgins Armory to Host Gingerbread Castle Competition

Thursday, December 06, 2012

 

In a unique twist on the classic gingerbread house competition, Higgins Armory Museum in Worcester is hosting its 3rd annual Gingerbread Castle Competition on Saturday, December 15. The contest will feature professional and amateur bakers vying for titles in their respective divisions, with museum-goers helping to decide the winners.

“Over the last couple of years we’ve seen some pretty amazing creations entered into our contests,” said Suzanne Maas, Higgins’ interim director. “Every year we try to come up with something new for the competition. With the addition of the judges’ panel, we expect the jousting to be even fiercer this year.”

Festively decorated and lined with an amazing collection of centuries-old suits of armor, the museum’s Great Hall will serve as the staging area for the competition, which takes place from 10:00a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The competition will be divided into two divisions, professional and amateur, with the winners being decided by a combination of visitor votes and judges selection. The judges’ panel is made up of local food experts and business leaders.

“Not only do our visitors get to enjoy the creativity and skills of our contestants, but they get to help determine the outcome of the competition,” Maas said.

As guests are admiring the sweet works of art and touring the museum, they can also enjoy an array of musical performances by classical guitarist Carl Kamp from 10:00a.m. – 1:30p.m. and the acapella caroling of the Master Singers of Worcester from 1:00 – 2:00p.m. There will even be the opportunity for children to use their culinary creativity while decorating their very own gingerbread cookies.

Admission is $12 for adults, $7 for children ages 4 to 16, and free for children 3 and under. Free parking is also available in the museum lot. For more information about the annual Gingerbread visit www.higgins.org.
