The giant gingerbread house is adorned with Christmas colors and decorations, and features fine details that celebrate the holiday season…such as a red cocoa butter roof, white fondant frosted windows, newly added lighthouse, “mitten” tree decorated with mitten-shaped ornaments, Snoopy “resting” on the rooftop, and a toy room inside.
This year’s new lighthouse design was inspired by the Point Betsie Lighthouse located south of Traverse City, MI.
