Moama’s Suttons Bakery has been busy creating a miniature gingerbread Echuca-Moama, which even has its own second bridge.RENEE THOMPSON December 24, 2013 4:27am
A second bridge is among the additions to the gingerbread village at Moama’s Suttons Bakery.
Already home to a train station, a school, a church, a post office, a bakery, a candy store, a toy shop and a bridge, the new add ons — with the exception of the second bridge — make ‘Suttonsville’ almost a miniature version of Echuca-Moama.
Owner Kathy Sperling said pastry chef Robyn Lam had been busy putting the final touches to it in the build up to Christmas.
‘‘Quite a bit has been added to the village,’’ she said.
‘‘We’ve got a paddlesteamer, another bridge and even our delivery guy, Dave, driving our delivery van over the bridge.’’
Mrs Sperling said the second bridge made it much easier for the delivery van and the car behind it to cross into Echuca.
Overall, the gingerbread town had been a great project for the bakery.
‘‘We’re really rapt at the community engagement we’ve had,’’ Mrs Sperling said.
‘‘Everyone really appreciates it.’’
Suttonsville will be kept on display for shoppers at Moama’s Safeway complex to enjoy until just after New Year’s.
