Features a sweet Santa that loves holiday treats so much, he frosted his coat! Having just baked and decorated an entire carousel out of gingerbread, Santa ices a cookie for himself—a much-deserved snack after all his hard work. This sugar-coated Santa is a companion ornament to the 2020 Gingerbread Carousel Signing Event piece.
You can look forward to a tasty new ornament at this year’s Keepsake Artist Signing Events.
When choosing a concept for this year’s studio ornament, Keepsake Artist Edythe Kegrize wanted to give her fellow artists a chance to show off what they can do.
“Immediately, I thought of cookies,” Edythe says. “Everybody loves baking at Christmas, and I’ve always admired the gingerbread competitions where people have spent hours upon hours and have all these wonderful creations on display.”
The result was the Gingerbread Carousel, which features creative treats from each artist in the studio. Keepsake Artist Terri Steiger created this year’s club-exclusive companion piece, Sweet Santa. Fresh from creating his gingerbread carousel masterpiece, it looks like Santa is rewarding himself with a treat of his own.
“I wanted him to look like he was getting in on the cookie decorating action,” Terri says. “Santa also has frosting-like decorative details that are a nod to gingerbread cookies.”
