Cookies & Castles

Gingerbread House

Gingerbread House from Cookies and Castles used for the Nelle and Lizzy photoshoot this year!

Fourteen years ago a friend of mine and I started a fundraiser here in Fort Worth which has grown to one of the highlights of our family’s year every holiday season ~ Cookies and Castles.  During the first weekend in November, hundreds of people purchase tickets to attend gingerbread decorating events.  Kids young and old use over 75 types of candy to create one of a kind pieces to display at their home during the holiday.  Last year I made this house ~ who knew it would be a prop for this year’s photoshoot!   Cookies & Castles is sponsored by the Fort Worth Alumnae Chapter of Delta Delta Delta and supports Cook Children’s Hematology Oncology Center.  If you are in our area and want to come ~ we would love to have you and your family attend.  You can click here to make reservations!
