Make your summertime family reunion memorable with a unique, sweet, wholesome activity for all ages. Create your own Family Tradition! (Helpful hint: Gingerbread isn’t just for wintertime anymore.)
So what do the words “Family Reunion” bring to your mind? A casual, slightly crazy get-together with people of all ages and interests getting reacquainted (and meeting the newest family members)? A picnic buffet or potluck, with (hopefully) fun activities that can adapt to weather demands? A rewarding but rather stressful event for the responsible host/hostess who wants to be sure that everyone’s needs are met and all attendees leave happy?
When you think about it, decorating gingerbread houses (or forts, or ships, or castles) is an activity that fits right into the spirit of the best Family Reunions — combining sweet treats, hands-on creativity, some slightly-wacky whimsy and lots of fun that people of all ages can enjoy together.
Add a friendly gingerbread decorating event to your Family Reunion plans, and you can be certain that everyone will enjoy themselves and remember the day fondly for years to come.
Here are three good reasons to put Gingerbread Decorating on your list of Family Reunion plans:

A 16 foot tall gingerbread house or “Frozen” gingerbread ice castle at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is adorned with sugar snowflakes, gingerbread shingles and chocolate-coated trees – Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven are decorated with sugar, chocolate and candy. In all, 423 pounds of chocolate and 311 pounds of honey went into the creation. While you can’t eat the house, there’s a special blue raspberry cake “Frozen” gelato, plus gingerbread and sugar cookies, snowflake ornaments, linzer and the popular chocolate-peppermint cookies. Take home a build-your-own snowman kit.
These are just two of the spectacular, all-new gingerbread designs that Walt Disney World Resort pastry chefs have spent months planning and weeks meticulously building. While the finished creations may look easy as pie, cobbling together a life-size masterpiece in gingerbread takes a lot of skillful hands.
You can see the displays through the first week of January, 2015.
The life-size gingerbread house celebrates 16 years at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa – the pastry chefs use the same building plans to re-create a fresh masterpiece each year, using a classic gingerbread recipe from Austria (they estimate 400 hours of baking). The house stands 16 feet high and features 40 window panes, made with a whopping 1,050 pounds of honey, 700 pounds of chocolate, 600 pounds of confectioner’s sugar, 35 pounds of spices, 800 pounds of flour, 140 pints of egg whites and 180 pounds of apricot glaze – more than 10,000 pieces of gingerbread make up the house. Gingerbread house decorating demos are featured daily except Sundays, and this is the place to buy gingerbread cookies, stollen, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate-peppermint bark (divine), gingerbread ornaments, mini-gingerbread houses and other goodies.
