The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas presents Gingerbread House Grand Unveiling
The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas will debut the 20-foot tall Gingerbread House shopping suite with a bevy of holiday festivities in the hotel lobby. The great reveal of this year’s Gingerbread House will be accompanied by special musical performances, photo opportunities with Santa and Mrs. Claus, and opportunities to shop handcrafted candies from hotel’s pastry chefs.
Behind the massive Gingerbread House are the hotel’s own nationally-recognized pastry chefs, Corey Thomson and Zachary Manasan, winners of Netflix’s Sugar Rush Season 2. The creative duo has spent 46 days constructing the enormous, entirely edible gingerbread house brick-by-brick, with a 14 feet wide storefront, a depth of 18 feet and a height of 20 feet tall. The sweet abode is composed of over 540 pounds of flour, 225 pounds of molasses and 367 pounds of icing, taking over 500 hours to prepare.
