Gingerbread Plantations At The Roosevelt

Monday, December 09, 2013

I heard about the gingerbread display at the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans, so last week, Av took these pics for me when he was nearby for a meeting:

The houses are recreations of Louisiana plantations -- Oak Alley:

And because I like gingerbread so much, we have our own Chanukah house, made by The Gingerbread Lady in Birmingham:

The Grove Park Inn in Asheville has the annual National Gingerbread Competition, and a slideshow of winners (some of which don't even look like gingerbread) are here.

The World's Largest Gingerbread House (as certified by Guinness of course!) is in Bryan, Texas. From the Houston Chronicle:
The house in Bryan is 65 feet by 45 feet. The builders actually built it an inch bigger than expected, pushing it over just a tad more. This one scored extra points with the Guinness people for being built outside in the elements, and in Texas no less.

Built by the Texas A&M Traditions Club, the house took nearly a month to build. It was constructed using 1,800 pounds of butter, 7,200 eggs, 7,200 pounds of flour and close to 3,000 pounds of brown sugar. Add to this the 22,000 piece of candy that are attached to it.


Thanks to people paying admission to visit, the project has already raised over $150k for a hospital trauma center.  Now that's sweet.
