Over-the-Top Gingerbread Houses
Location: The Grove Park Inn & Spa's 2009 Gingerbread Competition (Asheville, NC)
Rita and Monte Adams' scene tells the story of Santa getting ready to ride out of an old western town following dinner at the Jingle Café, gift shopping at the Rocky Mountain toy shop and a night's rest at the Holly Tree Hotel. In the scene, Santa has saddled up a solid chocolate horse while elves have loaded his coach with Christmas toys. The couple used 15 pounds of flour, 22 1/2 pounds of fondant, 12 pounds of sugar and dozens of other ingredients to make this gingerbread tableau.
