Gingerbread men and women are a timeless Christmas classic. Wrapped individually, they make great gifts or present toppers. I can also personalize them, or dress them in any outfit that suits you! Other Christmas and Hannukah cutouts include: Christmas trees, ornaments, mittens, sweaters, angels, snowflakes, stars, elves, Jewish stars, dreidels, menorahs, etc.
Zillycakes also makes an extensive line of Artisanal Christmas cookies that are available from Mid-November through the end of December. We can customize gift boxes, baskets, or trays that include an assortment of cookies and/or mini cupcakes of your choice. We have been honored to work with the following corporations on their holiday gifts:
Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria
Young and Wright Architectural
Larkin Development Group
This gingerbread "house" is modeled after a country church. The windows are made of crushed cinnamon candies, and the whole structure is lit from within by an electric bulb. The roof is tiled with hundreds and hundreds of pumpkin seeds. Kit-kat bars and pretzel squares make the stairs. In 2009, Zillycakes will sell a limited addition of 5 gingerbread houses by special order beginning in October. We will also offer workshops for those who would like to make their own!
Zillycakes won first place in the Gilda's House gingerbread competition in 2007. Zilly Rosen designed the structure, and Zilly and Mo McKenna built it. This gingerbread "house" has a rotating decorated gingerbread Christmas tree inside! Zilly's husband Lee helped with the engineering and Mo's boyfriend Alex Davies helped with the construction of the base. The windows are made from about 300 crushed and melted pineapple candies. The exterior brick surface and window frame ornamentation is piped by hand. The 3 story house "pops" out of a gingerbread present painted with red icing and tied with a fondant bow. Foil wrapped chocolate candies are the presents beneath the tree.
