|Remember Gingy from Shrek? the movie that poked fun at Disney ....|
I know one Zonta Club in Sydney which runs an annual gingerbread house building day - a fun, interactive activity that keeps them in touch with their local community and celebrates the season.
However, those ladies have never gone as big as anything in Orlando - and all the resorts do it - each aiming to be the one who has more sugar, more icing and more electronics than the next. Over this holiday season let's take a look at some of these constructions - oppan gingnam style!
Disney's Beach Club Resort
This was my first gingerbread experience - so I have a lot of photos, as I stood there in awe, amazed that the whole thing was technically edible. I use the word 'technically' because apparently the Disney gingerbread is about as edible as the roofing tiles they seek to emulate.
So the Beach Club does this delightful
|I like horsies but I couldn't eat a whole one|
|These horses are quite immaculate - with not a drop of icing out of place|
|Beware the zombie gingerbread men who want gingerbread BWAINNNSSSS|
|Not content with just a carousel, a few extras were also built|
|A gingerbread Sleeping Beauty's Castle!|
|Pirates! A mini, edible Jack Sparrow - just for my friend Penny!|
|Hidden Mickey was a misnomer|
|There was a lifesize gingerbread shop where one could buy gingerbread |
enjoy this little video from WDW from several years ago - where they build the carousel in only 30 seconds!
There are more gingery constructions to show you. However as I saw more and more of them I was getting gingered out! So there are less photos. Wait till I show you the grandaddy at the Grand Floridian resort.
Oh and remember Gingy at the opening of this post?? Well - this year Mickey got revenge. Here is one of the souvenirs I bought:
|Run, run as fast as you can ....|
So what about you? Will you be baking gingerbread this Christmas season?
