Giant Gingerbread House – Royal Park Hotel 2012

Posted by Lisa LaGrou November 14, 2012 Local Activities

The life-size gingerbread house returns to the lobby of The Royal Park Hotel for another holiday season. In its fourth year of partnership with The Salvation Army, the Royal Park Hotel has built yet another giant gingerbread house masterpiece. The giant gingerbread house stands eight feet tall and is adorned with Christmas colors and decorations, and features fine details such as cobble stone border, candied icicles, snowflakes on the gingerbread shingled rooftop, and a toy room inside.

Ingredients used for the 2012 giant gingerbread house at The Royal Park Hotel:

  • 220 cups of sugar
  • 300 lbs of gingerbread mix
  • 110 cups of powdered sugar
  • 90 gallons of water
  • 240 eggs
  • 300 lbs of holiday candy
  • 400 candy canes
  • 10 gallons of fondant

The giant gingerbread house will be displayed in the Royal Park Hotel’s grand lobby now through the 2012 holiday season until January 6, 2013!

The Royal Park Hotel is selling gingerbread “brick” certificates to support the 2012 Red Kettle Campaign. Bricks may be purchased from the hotel’s front desk for a $10 minimum donation to The Salvation Army. Sponsors will receive a special certificate recognizing their contribution.
