Dubbed GingerBread Lane, it’s currently the largest gingerbread village on Earth, according to Guinness World Records. There are more than 1,300 gingerbread houses on display, and they’re all entirely made with candy, royal icing, and gingerbread.Photo Credit: New York Hall of ScienceTo hold this Guinness World Records title, every part of the gingerbread display has to be edible and mimic a village with homes, shops, and town services, such as a police station. GingerBread Lane currently makes the cut for all this criteria. It features quirky storefront names, including Pickles and Ice Cream Pregnancy Boutique, 8 Maids a Milking Dairy and Milk Bar, and 5 Golden Rings Jewelry Store.AdChoices广告Jon Lovitch, the creative baker of this sugary project, aims to break the record again with this year’s GingerBread Lane. Every year, he sketches, bakes, and decorates all of the GingerBread Lane buildings in Queens, New York. What’s cool about GingerBread Lane is Lovitch’s creativity with candy. You’ll see gumdrops adorning brick walls, candy cans transformed into staircase railings, and M&M’s used for rooftop shingles.Photo Credit: New York Hall of ScienceIf you’re in the New York City area, you can visit the GingerBread Lane exhibit at the New York Hall of Science from November 10, 2018 to January 21, 2019.
