Brief: Giant gingerbread at Stein Eriksen Lodge
November 27, 2009
This year Stein Eriksen Lodge is celebrating the holiday season with the creation and display of a 9x4x5-foot gingerbread Thomas the Train. The edible confection is the eighth such masterpiece of executive pastry chef Raymond Lammers. The gingerbread creation is slated for completion by early December and will be displayed in the Main Lodge. Featuring over 250 pounds of gingerbread and 80 pounds of icing, Thomas will have operating wheels and eyes and colored icing to match the original colors of Thomas the Train. Chef Lammers, a Dutch native, spent 150 hours building the sugary delight.
