“Customers loved our Valentine’s Gingerbread Love Shacks, so with spring knocking on our door in the Santa Ynez Valley, we thought we would take our cue from nature and give birth to something new ourselves,” said co-owner Melissa Halme Redell.
“The deep brown roof that’s so warm and comforting in the dead of winter is not particularly bursting with the enthusiasm of spring. So we’ve swapped it out for a bright and cheery yellow roof made from sturdy short-dough. It’s seated in a bed of light green royal icing ‘grass’, then trimmed with your choice of pink, green, yellow, or blue royal icing.”
The Easter Gingerbread House showcases nature’s baby creatures at both the front and back door, and colorful edible flowers and bulbs blooming in the garden. The roofline is adorned with eggs, with one side featuring the hand-iced names of family or friends. The Solvang Bakery will also hand-inscribe a greeting on the opposite side of the roof, such as “Happy Easter”, “Happy Spring”, or “Welcome Friends.”
“Just as with our Gingerbread Houses for Christmas and Hanukkah, the Spring Gingerbread Houses make unique holiday gifts for Easter – our online ordering business has really matured in the last two years - we ship gingerbread houses throughout the country,” says Redell. “We also have beautifully decorated egg-shaped Easter cookies, abundant Easter baskets, and our steadfast offerings of pastries (including hot cross buns) that are perfect for Easter brunches and breakfasts.”
Located at 438 Alisal Road, Solvang, CA, 93463, The Solvang Bakery specializes in gingerbread houses, Danish pastries, iced cookies, wedding and specialty cakes, and cupcakes.
