EatBeat: Tropical Gingerbread House is Santa’s Beach Cabana – in Downtown West Palm Beach

December 5th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Part of the Sand and Sea-Sun’s Greetings in downtown West Palm Beach (did you see the 35-foot Christmas tree made of sand?), the students and chefs at Lincoln Culinary Institute created a giant beach cabana from gingerbread for the waterfront display.

Chefs David Pantone and Manfred Schmidtke led a dozen culinary and pastry arts students in building the 12-by-20-foot life-sized cabana, using approximately 400 pounds of gingerbread dough, 400 pounds of royal icing, 300 eggs and 200 pounds of sugar.

The display features Santa sitting at his beach shack, complete with surfboard and tiki roof. The cabana will be on public display through the end of December at the Mandel Public Library’s foyer, 411 Clematis St., West Palm Beach.

    I think that what you posted was actually very
    logical. However, think on this, suppose you were to create a awesome title?
    I ain’t suggesting your information is not good., however suppose you added a headline that grabbed folk’s attention?
    I mean EatBeat: Tropical Gingerbread House is Santa
