Enormous gingerbread house at The St. Regis Atlanta

Following the success of last year, The St. Regis Atlanta’s pastry team is constructing once again a huge gingerbread house in collaboration with Sugarfina, a luxury candy boutique, to give a warm welcome to guests in the hotel’s grand lobby entrance. The gingerbread house takes about 500 hours to construct and will be a combination of 300 pounds of flour, 100 pounds of sugar, 10 pounds of spice, 70 pounds of shortening, 45 pounds of corn syrup and 16 pounds of molasses. The creation will also be adorned with over 300 pounds of royal icing, gingerbread figurines, and poinsettias. Sugarfina will host a pop-up holiday candy shop within the gingerbread house to sell its holiday collections featuring limited-edition candies. The gingerbread display is open to the public, and free. On display until Jan. 1., 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. Monday.

88 West Paces Ferry Rd NW, Atlanta. 404-563-7900.
