- A gingerbread house to aspire to
Halifax’s newest breakfast joint, Robie Street Station (2394 Robie Street) has decided to put the grocery-store-bought, cardboard-tasting gingerbread house kits to shame. In the spirit of the season the diner’s hosting a Gingerbread House Decorating Contest in which it’ll provide an assembled, and homemade house, two freshly baked gingerbread people, handmade frosting, assorted candy and two cups of hot chocolate to fuel your inner Debbie Travis.
The decorating showdown starts at 5pm next Tuesday, December 9—but to give the gingerbread-makers time to prepare, you have to register by Sunday (your tasty materials cost $50). First prize is a “fun pack” to help you survive and enjoy a snow day.
