There’s a lot of construction going on at Big Cedar Lodge—the Garden Chapel, the Big Cedar Spa, and Bass Pro Shops Outdoor Academy are all set to open sometime next year; however, there’s one construction project underway that will be completed within the week… The Giant Gingerbread House!
Every year since 1998, Big Cedar associates have constructed a Giant Gingerbread House. There have been many structures assembled including replicas of The Worman House, Truman Coffee and Café, Big Cedar Cabins, a life size fireplace, a Santa boat, and a Christmas sleigh. This year’s construction is a two-story replica of the Garden Chapel, Big Cedar’s newest upcoming wedding venue.
Associates from the bakery department and restaurants have been working around the clock to assemble the edible creation by the end of the week. Every piece of gingerbread is hand baked and hand laid into place, giving a spicy aroma to the entire Registration area. Buckets of icing and sheets of confectionary siding will soon combine with assorted candies to complete the design.
To watch the construction progress, stop by the Registration Building. No need to bring a hard hat, but you might leave with a sweet tooth!
