Gallery Feature Friday: Greenbrier Gingerbread Village

  • Production Time – Approximately 45-50 hours spread out over 4 days. 
  • Notes – Four long days. The previous Executive Pastry Chef used to make a gingerbread village every Christmas. So when a new Pastry Chef was hired, the resort gave him short notice about the village, and he in turn assigned it to me because I was the only one in the shop with prior experience building gingerbread houses. It wasn’t as elaborate as the old Pastry Chef’s village, but given the condensed time frame I had, I was very pleased with the results.

  2. very nice work! I hope to attack a gingerbread house in my own kitchen soon. your watermark is a little too distracting, it overpowers your work.

  4. I feel for you on the mambo #5…it used to come on daily at a place that I worked at with preset playlists (usually several times). So when I saw your post I had to cringe. If I never here the song again…too soon. Of course, having read that it is now stuck in my head…
