Westport Historical Society Announces Gingerbread Contest

Get out the frosting and the gumdrops and enter your gingerbread version of the Bradley-Wheeler House, Westport Museum’s headquarters—or a Westport historic building of your choice. Entrants may also do a gingerbread version of their own home too. Entries will be accepted from November 1- December 1 with the winner being announced on December 12.

The categories include making the Museum headquarters, the Bradley Wheeler House, or other historic buildings in Westport. There are family and individual categories, a grand prize chosen by judges, and a  people’s choice category. The celebrity judges include Victoria Kann, author of Pinkalicious; Stephanie Webster, founder, CTBITES; Chef Bill Taibe, and Edward Gerber of Historic New England.

To learn how to make a gingerbread house the Westport Historical Society is also offering an online class with Chef Lorilynn Bauer, formerly of Iron Chef America. To register for the class click here.
