Nine foot tall gingerbread house on display at Grand Sierra Resort


Resort builds large gingerbread house to celebrate the holidays

Celebrating the spirit of the holidays, The Grand Sierra Resort and Casino’s Food and Beverage team have carefully crafted and decorated a nine foot tall, seven foot wide, gingerbread house that is currently on display near Starbucks at the resort.

The gingerbread house contains approximately 1,175 pounds of gingerbread, 825 pounds of icing and hundreds of cookies and candies, all of which are completely edible. It took nearly 180 hours with twelve of Santa’s best helpers baking gingerbread, cookies and candies, whipping and piping icing to construct the house.

The house will be on display throughout the holidays for guests to admire, photograph and enjoy! A fresh basket of gingerbread sits outside the house on a daily basis for guests who want a taste of this extraordinary holiday decor.
