Visiting the Gingerbread Village at NY Hall of Science #GingerbreadLane

One of the favorite holiday activities is making Gingerbread houses. There's something about building a home using yummy snacks. If your a fan of Gingerbread houses then you'll be interested in the GingerBread Lane exhibit at New York Hall of Science.

The GingerBread Lane exhibit is a creation and product of Chef Jon Lovitch, and took one full year to develop and complete, requiring approximately 1,500 hours of labor.

This year, GingerBread Lane celebrates its 20th season with its 29th village. The village includes an estimated 1,900 lbs. of icing, 400 lbs. of candy, and 500 lbs. of gingerbread dough. It also comprises 152 gingerbread houses, 65 trees, 4 gingerbread cable cars, 5 gingerbread train cars, an underground candy subway station, candy trees, and sugar signage.

New this year are Ribbon Candy Ridge and a “behind-the-scenes” window, giving a peek into the makings of GingerBread Lane with ovens, models, and ingredients, made entirely from royal icing. Five two-foot-high nutcrackers, also made of royal icing, stand guard over the back of the exhibit.
