PAGE 14A HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, DECEMBER 12, 2014 Two San Francisco Bay area moms, Lisa Kinne and Susan Mayost, set up a new busi- ness they call Sweet Thrills Bakeshop, and their focus has primarily been on develop- ing a new, creative activity for Chanukah--Chocolate Gingerbread Menorah deco- rating kits. "With our kids all now in school (ages 4-8), it was time for us to have some fun with our own creative ideas, not that playing Legos and hav- ing tea parties isn't endlessly satisfying," said Kinne. The idea was sparked by Mayost's own experience as a Jewish parent. Each year her kids would be excited by the idea of building with gingerbread and decorating with candy, so she would go ahead and get them a ginger- bread house. "But as their finished gingerbread house sat among the dreidels and latkes during Chanukah, it just didn't feel quite right," she said. And so, the idea was born to create a product that still offered children all the fun of building and decorating with ginger- bread and candy, but in a way more relevant to the Jewish traditions and Cha- nukah celebrations. "Our Gingerbread Meno- rah Kits are certified Kosher Pareve and come complete with everything you'd need, from chocolate gingerbread pieces for the Menorah, to ready-to-use icing and plenty of candy," Kinne told the Heri- tage. Also available are candy candle-making supplies, with step-by-step instructions that allow children to mold and design their own unique Cha- nukah "candle" collection.
