One week until Christmas – wow! Does anyone else find this month has flown by? It usually goes fast, but for some reason, this year it seems like it was just the first and now here it is December 17. And if you’re anything like me, you’re making your list, checking it twice and realizing there’s still a lot to get done.
Even when things are busy and hectic, during the holidays there are often certain traditions we don’t want to give up, even if we are pressed for time. And that’s where Ashley’s Pastries can help ease some of the stress of the season and allow time for the fun of making memories.
Did you know…
Ashley’s Pastries offers gingerbread kits? If you and yours want to put together a fun gingerbread house but don’t have the time to bake all the required pieces, we can do it for you! Just give us a call to order a kit and we can bake it for you and have it ready for a quick pickup. The kit comes with everything you need to create your own gingerbread masterpiece. You’ll get large squares to create the walls of the house, pieces for a roof, and a few extra small gingerbread shapes for doors and windows. Plus (and perhaps the most important part) is the delicious icing to hold everything together!
You can add different candy toppings, too, to achieve the look you want. Some of our favorites include candy canes, gum drops, chocolate chips, peppermint candies and red and green M&Ms, although the beauty of building your own gingerbread house is you can make it however you like it.
Our gingerbread kits are also great if you’ve never made your own gingerbread house before. You don’t have to worry about baking anything, but we can provide all that you need to have a successful build. Plus everything is fresh.
We hope we can make your holidays happy and we’re thankful we can to celebrate this special season with friends like you!
