• We are thrilled to announce that Dynamic Energy Crystals on Princess Street has won the People's Choice Award for the 2023 Gingerbread House Tour & Competition! Their beautiful creation delighted visitors throughout the month of December.
    The credit for this masterpiece goes to Kyndal Stevens, an employee at Dynamic Energy Crystals, who found time to dream up the entire Gingerbread Village even while studying for her finals. The village was completely edible, with an amethyst-style pathway an enormous geode made from sugar, chocolates, licorice, and fondant and marshmallow sculptured goodies. The coffee bean Christmas tree representing their family coffee farm was also edible and added to the charm of the entire village.
    ´╗┐This was Dynamic Energy Crystals' first time participating in the competition, and we can't wait to see what they come up with next year.
    Congratulations to the team at Dynamic Energy Crystals for their well-deserved win!
