5 December 2007

RANCHO, MIRAGE, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -– Agua Caliente Casino has put the final touches on its annual Gingerbread castle display, heralding a very sweet start to the holiday season.

This is the fifth year the casino's Executive Chef Tim Wilcox and his team have built the massive display. The frosting and candy-covered castle took 160 hours to build and stands 8 feet high, 8 feet wide and 4 feet deep, putting to shame the handiwork of moms and grandmothers everywhere!

-290 pounds of gingerbread dough used to make over 100 sheets of gingerbread squares.

-120 pounds of royal icing

-67 pounds of assorted candies including: Lemon Heads, Boston Baked Beans, Red Hots, JuJuBees, Jelly Beans, M&Ms, Red Vines, spice drops, Gummi Bears, gum drops, Sour Punch Straws, JuJu Fish, candied oranges, Mike and Ike, Life Savers, Tootsie Rolls, Sno-Caps and Necco wafers and more. Gingerbread Castle Construction Team: Executive Chef Tim Wilcox, Pastry Chef Domingo Hic, Bakers Sandra Hernandez and Francisca Palacios, Sub-Structure builder Felipe Hernandez.
