The Gingerbread Express is surrounded by Christmas decorations and is loaded with a bag filled with toys Santa needs to deliver. The giant gingerbread toy train is made up of all edible pieces that are constructed to look like a functional train! Gingerbread planks, candy bolts, fondant siding, and more!
This year’s new toy train design has been a vision in the making for the past four years and the Chef was thrilled to finally put this gingerbread toy train in “motion!”

Visitors will have the opportunity to sponsor a pair of adult or children’s mittens for a minimum donation of $10. Additionally, the newly opened PARK 600 bar + kitchen will be donating $1 from each dessert purchased to the 2016 Red Kettle Campaign. All funds raised will support northern Oakland County families in need.
