Giant Gingerbread Pop-Up Shop at Hyatt Regency Sydney
It’s sugar, spice and all things nice this month at Hyatt Regency Sydney with a giant gingerbread pop-up shop, open until December 25, 2018.
Upping the ante on festive spirit this year, Pastry Chef Prashant Anand led the team to create a 3 metre high gingerbread house that entices guests with the scent of warm spices and Christmas cheer.
Taking five days to assemble, the life-size house consists of 200kg of honey, 60 litres of milk, 1000 eggs, 1000kg of icing sugar and of course lots of delicious candy.
“While flour and sugar aren’t the wisest choices for building a house, they’re the go-to options when it comes to building a gingerbread house” Anand said “We wanted to create a warm festive vibe where friends and family will feel at home.”
The fun doesn’t stop there, the house is also filled with delicious treats perfect for those in need of a quick gift. From traditional fruit cake, chocolate Santa’s and cinnamon star cookies to coffee, wine and plenty of champagne there is something for everyone this Christmas at Hyatt Regency Sydney.
For those wanting to take a bite of the gingerbread house. You can certainly do that too, just follow the signs to find the wall where you can pick off a piece of candy. Note to self, take a piece and you may want to come back for more.
