Sweet success at student gingerbread competition

There was no escaping the sugary scent as visitors entered the gymnasium at Enver Creek Secondary last week.

It soon became apparent the sweet smell came from the structures lining the long tables – gingerbread houses, vehicles, even a pirate ship – dripping with icing and candy embellishment.

Train-EnverCreek.jpgOrganized by Enver Creek's teaching chef Mike Doyle, the competition attracted 23 entries made by close to 40 students from seven schools across the Lower Mainland.

Judges chef Terry Larsen, chef Andy Fenje and Trustee Bob Holmes inspected each, assessing the construction and creativity, including the use of gingerbread, icing and colour.

Entries were given gold, silver and bronze awards.

Gold winners were:

Mya Thompson and Griffin Kiryluk – Enver Creek Secondary (train, pictured above right)
