These Gingerbread Houses are made from an original Gingerbread Cookie recipe. The bakery uses all the ingredients called for and took no short cuts. The bakery has built 5 houses this year and used approximately:
* 340 # flour (and spices)
* 200 # powder sugar
* 200 egg whites
* 160 whole eggs
* 45 # honey
* 75 # sugar
* 10 # baking powder
* 60 # sourball candies (all the windows are made of sour balls)
* $300 of cookies & assorted candies.
There are over 750 lights in and on the 5 houses. Each house took about 25 – 35 hours to complete. The total combined weight of the houses is over 500 #.
The Gingerbread Houses were baked, constructed & decorated in about a two month period. It took the entire Culinary & Stewarding Staff’s participation along with some willing Bartenders, Wait Staff, and many volunteer hours from Family & Friends to complete the houses. Visit here for more.
