Trio named winners of gingerbread house contest in Canton
“The Jolly Roger” was the winner of this year’s TAUNY gingerbread contest.
CANTON -- Visitors to The TAUNY Center in December cast their votes for their favorite entry in this year’s Sugar & Spice gingerbread contest.The theme this year was “Myths & Fairytales.”
The winner is “The Jolly Roger” by Galen Oey-Langen, Diego Oey-Langen, and Lexi Stuntz.
The three gingerbreaders worked together to portray the final battle between Peter Pan and Captain Hook in the story Peter Pan.
They constructed a ship using a mason jar as a mold, and baked their own pretzel sticks to make the masts.
The ship is rolling on an icing wave, while a gum drop crocodile rears out of the water.
Many visitors commented on the skillful use of materials in the construction, and the attention to details, said TAUNY director Jill Breit.
