Welcome to a snowy wonderland, where famous landmarks and icons of New York City are lovingly recreated in gingerbread.  

From ice skating in the parks across the five boroughs to department store windows and the tree at Rockefeller Center, nowhere is more iconic than the city in winter. Now, sweet details and tasty history combine in a miniature frosted cityscape for our second annual bake-off.   

This year, the Museum invited 23 bakers from across the five boroughs to create gingerbread displays on the theme of “Iconic New York”—creating distinctive buildings, places, or things that represent their neighborhood, community, or borough.  

A panel of prominent New York City-based bakers, curators, and restaurant owners awarded prizes in a variety of categories, and you’re invited to help select the final award by voting for the “People’s Choice.” There will also be a holiday-themed makerspace with crafts for kids.
