Why should I come along?
It’s a fun bonding opportunity with your family and friends! Have a drink, something to eat, and a great way to support Payne Road State School.

What do I get out of this?
By the end of the workshop, you will have your own personalised handmade gingerbread house that you get to assemble yourself. You will have all the pieces needed to make and decorate your house. One of the volunteers will help wrap your completed house ready for you to take home.

Will I like the taste of the gingerbread?
The gingerbread has been selected from a Blue Mountains baked range, using high quality, all natural ingredients. Rest assured, we have sampled this product and they are by far the best quality gingerbread/or chocolate houses around!

The house is being made in summer, will the icing become undone?
No, the icing will not melt at any temperature below 150C.

Will my gingerbread house spoil if I want to display it and wait until after Christmas to eat it?
No, your gingerbread house has a shelf life of six months if stored airtight. You can eat your gingerbread house after Christmas.

I can’t wait until after Christmas; can I eat my gingerbread house straight away?
Yes, of course! There is no need to display your beautiful creation – after all, it is tasty!

What is the size of the house I am getting?
Dimensions of the completed house is 15cm x 12cm x 16cm

How many people can I have to build one house?
We recommend you have a 3 people per house (ie 2 children, 1 adult). Happy for whole families to come and take rotation/turns at adding to the decoration of the house, but please note, due to the size of the house, and chairs layout, space at tables is set up for 3 people at a time per house.

People in my family have allergies – will gingerbread be suitable for them?
Fear not! The gingerbread house is completely egg-free, with egg-free icing.
The gingerbread house also comes with a gluten free option:

– Allergen information for wheat flour gingerbread: Contains gluten, dairy and soy
– Allergen information for gluten free gingerbread: Contains soy
– Allergen information for various lollies used: May contain, or has been packed on a line that contains gluten, barley, sulphite, peanuts and tree nuts.
