Holiday: Gingerbread House

When: Nov. 24-Dec. 28 2011

Walking by The Ritz-Carlton's life-sized Gingerbread House (it won't be completed until Thanksgiving Day, so use your imagination!), may be too tempting for folks who can't control their urges to snatch pieces of candy. Just remember the ol' "Don't touch anything!" commands you probably heard as a child and think of it as art, rather than food. The creative structure (12 feet high, 14 feet wide and 10 feet deep) was architect-designed and culinary concocted by pastry chefs. Its components - 350 pounds of sugar, 300 pounds of floor, 100 eggs, four pounds of baking soda and many more mounds of ingredients - must have made for a lengthy visit at the grocery store. Needless to say, this is one holiday decoration you shouldn't miss seeing (not eating). Those with a lingering sweet tooth can find satisfaction in the hotel's new addition, Bar Cocoa. On view through Dec. 28.
