NEW YORK (WLNY) — There’s a sweet little village on display at the New York Hall of Science in Queens. It’s called Gingerbread Lane and Alex Denis brought the Mobile Couch along to get a taste.
The village includes an estimated 1,900 pounds of icing, 400 pounds of candy, and 500 pounds of gingerbread dough. It is comprised of 152 gingerbread houses, 65 trees, four gingerbread cable cars, five gingerbread train cars, an underground candy subway station, candy trees and sugar signage.
A behind-the-scenes window gives 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 exhibit.
