PCA Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Competition Accepts Community Participants

Architecture, beauty and creativity are all woven together in one contest each year at the Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Competition. What started initially as an architectural lesson plan for the Plymouth Christian Academy students has blossomed into a school-wide contest many look forward to each year. According to PCA art instructor Susan Aitken, “Building a gingerbread house embodies many skills – from architectural design and geometry to creative use of candy, nuts, and chocolate! And it is all packaged in a very traditional and fun project. Entries have included all sorts of structures – lighthouse, Victorian houses, Noah’s ark, barbershop, and even a house from Dr. Seuss’ Whoville!”
For the second year, Plymouth Christian Academy is extending an invitation to the entire community, students and adults, to join in the fun of the Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Competition. All submissions will be judged by a local culinary arts specialist, Darren Vassel of Main Street Catering, on Thursday morning, December 11, in the Calvary Baptist Church lobby. All entries will be displayed at the PCA Christmas Fine & Performing Arts Festival on Friday, December 12, beginning at 6:30 pm. Ribbons and prizes will be awarded at the end of the evening at which time the entries will be taken home.
