Just a little Gingerbread House…

December 23, 2009

We’re back at Disney this week (holy crowds!) and I just had to share this Gingerbread House the magical people at Disney created for the Grand Floridian (not that we were lucky enough to stay there).


Can you believe it?  Holy WOW.  That’s 2 stories folks.


The details were incredible.


And it’s all edible – obviously my favorite part.

So here’s what it takes to make this (in case you’d like to attempt it in your backyard):

  • 1,050 lbs of honey
  • 800 lbs of Flour
  • 600 lbs of Chocolate
  • 600 lbs of Powdered Sugar
  • 140 pints of Egg Whites
  • 35 lbs of Spices

You’ll also need 2 months and more than 840 hours to stir, cut, and bake the 5,089 “shingles” used to decorate the Gingerbread House.


But I bet your neighbors would think it was worth it!


And if you set up shop directly from inside your house and handed out cookies and treats, all the local adorables would certainly elect you mayor.

Ahhh, the World of Disney is magical at Christmas!

I have to thank Amy at Ears of Experience for setting up another amazing Disney trip for us: the best room rates, dining reservations, full park itineraries, and all the holiday festivities and hoopla mapped out so we wouldn’t miss anything.  Thank you!!
