The tradition of creating gingerbread houses dates back to the early 1800s, around the time Hansel and Gretel found a cottage “made of bread and cakes, and the window-panes were of clear sugar” in the Grimm fairy tale. Over the years, the confection became a holiday pastime in Germany, and eventually around the world.
Starbucks® Gingerbread Café Kit, complete with gooey gumdrops, candy canes and teeny tiny red cups, is new for the holidays. The café is easy to build and fun to decorate with a flourish of icing and a sprinkle of candies.
