2014: Frozen in Time

The twist for this milestone display was that in lieu of gingerbread, our primary building material was Charms, a clear candy made by the Tootsie Roll company. This year’s display utilizes 14,000 Charms and 2,200 clear candy “bricks” produced by the Lancaster County Career and Technology Center, along with 100 pounds of rock candy, 55 gallons of icing and 40 pounds of miscellaneous colored candies! Another important “building material” was 10 plus pounds of fondant which was used to mold a variety of objects, animals and people populating our frozen village. Loosely modeled after Disney’s hit movie, Frozen, this year’s display focused on glowing lights and ice crystals in celebration of our firm’s 60th anniversary diamond jubilee. The annual tradition, which began in 1988, involves employees, family and friends who volunteer for hours of creative confectionary construction. Beginning just before Thanksgiving, participants spent many evenings and week-ends pulling everything together in time for our client party in early December.
