If you’re looking for a way to let the good times roll, grab your cookie cutters and measuring cups and get baking for this year’s gingerbread house competition at the Chippewa Valley Museum. Registration runs Nov. 7 through Nov. 21 at cvmuseum.com, and there is a $5 entry fee. From Nov. 30-Dec. 4, you can see all the masterful gingerbread creations at the museum – or from Dec. 5 through Dec. 19 virtually. (All of these plans are, of course, dependent on the Eau Claire City-County Health Department’s advice on COVID-19.) There will be fan-favorite voting and prizes. Happy baking!
