#16 - Happy Campers! Fond Memories of Camp Homewood on Quadra Island
Created by: Kim Barnard
What was your inspiration?
The incredible opportunity to retreat to an unplugged life at "Woodsman' with Camp Homewood on the unspoiled shoes of Mine Lake, with adventures a-plenty in the woods and on the water, complete with a bird's-eye-view from the top of the Bluff nearby! It’s "Back-to-the-basics" camp fun!
How long did you take to make your creation?
Up to 2 weeks in my home kitchen. After that I'm a busy full-time Gingerbread Factory!
What was the most challenging part?
Transportation from Shawnigan Lake safely down the Malahat to the display location. I always breathe easier once this is done!
What are you most proud of?
Using as much gingerbread as possible and having the display SMELL amazing, along with sharing smiles and extra Christmas Spirit, especially this holiday season!
Did you use a unique ingredient or technique?
I built up the terrain using crisp rice cereal and may be melting some interesting candy combinations for the water effects!
