Gingerbread House Exhibit – Architecture Museum, Stockholm
December 12th, 2012
We just caught the Gingerbread (Pepperkaks) Exhibit at the Architecture Museum in Skeppsholmen, in the center of Stockholm. The exhibit will continue through January 6 and is a great way to get in the mood for Swedish Christmas baking. Gingerbread cookies are the heart of Swedish Christmas baking. Swedes are so handy – we have so many Swedish friends at home who should have entered! The kids are determined to try to enter next year, too. As we drove home, they were so inspired they asked me “what area of the house” they could have to fill with a Gingerbread village!
Since 1990, the Swedish Museum of Architecture’s Gingerbread House exhibition has been a beloved tradition. This year, all participants were invited to participate under the slogan “I can play too! Entries have been divided into three groups: architects and professional bakers, children under twelve years, and everyone else. Participants have been granted unlimited freedom to interpret the competition theme. Awards will be given out on Saturday, December 16.
