Santa's German Gingerbread Village

Location: The Sheraton Princess Ka'iulani Hotel, 2010 (Honolulu, HI)

Hotel executive chef Ralf Bauer and a team of culinary architects spent over 660 hours designing and constructing a gingerbread village that paid homage to both Bauer's native Germany and to old Hawaii. Medieval churches, bell towers, train stations, a carousel and skating rink mingled with iconic Hawaiian structures like the Kawaiha'o mission church and the magnificent Iolani Palace. The winter wonderland stood over 14 1/2 feet high and 24 feet wide and was made with 200 gallons of icing, 100 pounds of dark chocolate, 30 pounds of white chocolate and 60 sheets of gingerbread.
