The gingerbread creation has evolved throughout the years, from its small beginnings as a gingerbread house that was transformed into a gingerbread lighthouse, to most recently a gingerbread train. New this year, the amazing Royal Park Hotel pastry team re-purposed the gingerbread house frame into a holiday Salvation Army store front which will be adjacent to the train.
