2011 Gingerbread Lane at Hyatt Regency
For the 21st consecutive year the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Vancouver has transformed into magical lane of gingerbread creations.
Over forty gingerbread designs are on display now until December 27th including Vancouver's largest gingerbread house measuring 11 feet tall and 16 feet wide! The lanes centrepiece requires 1,400 eggs, 400 pounds of sugar and 500 pounds of gingerbread dough to make.
As you stroll through the decorated lane you will see a variety of sweet art including edible trees, houses and winter scenes! Each year, schools and amateur and professional chefs transform the hotel lobby into a winter wonderland competiting for the people's choice award and helping to support a great cause.
