Miss Maud’s keeps Christmas tradition alive

THE Swedish Christmas gingerbread-making tradition that has charmed children for generations has slowly become a treasured festive activity in Australia.

Every Christmas for the past 45 years, pastry chefs at the Miss Maud Bakehouse have embraced the Scandinavian tradition and for the first time, they will share the experience.

Maud Edmiston, better known as Miss Maud, is offering 12 children the opportunity to join her and her pastry chefs at a gingerbread making party.

Each child will be able to bring a parent and together, they will learn how to make gingerbread cookies in Miss Maud’s Odin Room at the Perth coffee house.

Community Newspaper Group invites parents to enter their children aged six to 10 to be in the running to attend the Miss Maud Christmas Gingerbread Making Party from 3pm to 4.30pm on Tuesday, December 20, at the Miss Maud Swedish Smorgasbord Restaurant in Perth.
