“Around the World” was the theme of our first Ultimate Gingerbread Challenge held on December 23. Five teams chose building supplies and embellishments from a dizzying array of candies and raced to make the best structure. Ultimately team “Candy Lovers 101” took first place for their sweet interpretation of the Parthenon. Other teams created the Eiffel Tower, the North Pole, a yurt, and Notre Dame Cathedral (which suddenly collapsed but was quickly re-fashioned into a leaning tower). The winning team received gift certificates to Candy Nation. The event was for students in grades 6-12 and was sponsored by the Friends of Penfield Public Library.
