A few years ago, Kelly Hardy decided to make a gingerbread house for the holidays. It didn’t turn out quite the way she wanted so the next year she tried again, but with a twist.
Being a Canadian Football League (CFL) fan, she decided to make a replica of a CFL stadium. She began with the home of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Mosaic Stadium.
It was a hit! She carried on and has made eight of the nine CFL stadiums over the years. The details she includes and her ability to capture the fun little elements that make each stadium unique is remarkable.
On this episode, host Angela de Burger chats with Kelly about how she came up with the idea to tackle such unique gingerbread structures, her process for developing a design, tips and tricks she’s learned about working with food as a creative medium, and the role creative problem solving plays in her approach.
