With Christmas around the corner, it’s santa, christmas lights, and the delicious smell of gingerbread everywhere. Many Scottsdale hotels are celebrating, and taking their cheer to a grand level is the JW Marriott Resort & Spa near Desert Ridge. They have unveiled their first life-size, walk-through Gingerbread Village! The mini-molasses city consists of 13 four by six-feet gingerbread houses and a clock tower in Santa’s village. The tasty mini-city is spread over 1,500-sqft of space and took 4,000 pounds of gingerbread cookie dough and 3,240 gingerbread bricks to make shingle roofs for the houses. It also took 2,000 pounds of icing, 750 pounds of sugar and only 25,000 eggs to be built. The Marriot’s 17 pastry chefs took over 800 hours combined to create the village. The event runs through December 28th and Santas Elves will visit on December 21 and 22nd.
