    Holiday Displays

    Walt Disney World pastry chefs spice things up this holiday season, baking festive chocolate goodies and delightful gingerbread treats in all shapes and sizes -- some titillating to the palate, others a feast for the eyes. Here's a sampling of what's on the holiday menu throughout Walt Disney World Resort in 2005:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Disney's Beach Club Resort

    A life-size carousel made completely of edible ingredients -- gingerbread, chocolate and sugar paste -- will be located in the lobby. Small gingerbread houses and collectible pins depicting the gingerbread carousel will be sold in the merchandise stores. Chefs will give demonstrations throughout the day, giving tips to guests on how to decorate their own gingerbread creations.

    Gingerbread carousel fun facts:


    36 lbs. of honey
    96 lbs. of bread flour
    100 pints of eggs
    10 lbs. of spices
    10 quarts of simple syrup
    100 lbs. of icing
    50 lbs. of dark chocolate
    10 quarts of egg whites
    100 lbs. of confectioner sugar
    Tons of enthusiasm, energy, and talent!
