THE QUEEN’S ROYAL GINGERBREAD PROJECT
The Queen’s Royal Gingerbread is a new project of WinterLights. For WinterLights, we will create gingerbread characters of famous 16th century persons living during the time of the Roanoke Colonies. These depictions will be located on the Presidents’ Walk. Each creation will be sponsored by a donor. Hand-painted signs will display the sponsors name.
The Gingerbread will be 5 feet tall and depict different 16th century characters. Our hope is to have the artwork created into real gingerbread cookies that will sold for WinterLights.
Why Gingerbread you ask? Well, frankly they are ideal for our era. Queen Elizabeth I was known for her elaborate dinners that included marzipan-shaped novelties and gingerbread crafted by her royal gingerbread maker. Once, she called for gingerbread to be created in a likeness to dignitaries and people in her court. And voila, the first Gingerbread men were born!
