GingerBread Lane at The Children's Museum in West Hartford

Chef Jon Lovitch is the creator of GingerBread Lane – an amazing 3-layered gingerbread village display which took 10 months and over 800 hours to conceptualize and finalize. This year marks Chef Lovitch’s 25th year creating these elaborate, delicious creations. Made from only “real” edible ingredients: gingerbread, royal icing and candy. Made with 255lbs of dough, 800lbs of icing, 350lbs of candy and over 20lbs of cinnamon, nutmeg, and of course, ginger! The candy comes from 14 countries. Contains 600 candy canes, 1,000 sticks of cinnamon gum and 3,500 jelly beans. Over 600 eggs were used to create the icing. This village takes up over 295 square feet and contains 340 houses, 2 cable cars, 2 trains, and over 3 dozen storefronts. This year you will find more Snowmen and Nutcrackers throughout the village! There are new storefronts for 2018! The “Snowman Apple Cider Company” and “GingerBread Flyer Sled Company” are a few examples. Can you find the GingerBread Man skating? The exhibit also includes hands-on activities for children in our Gingerbread Forest. Don’t miss this amazing exhibit. It’s only here for a limited time only!
