Boston’s Best Gingerbread House
With the holidays comes tradition and we have no shortage of new and old traditions here at Westin Copley. Some, like in this instance, are old and new – i.e. we’re bringing back the gingerbread house!
Our talented pastry team spent a little over three weeks constructing the Westin Copley Gingerbread House. They started with a vision of what they wanted the house to look like, created a template on paper and then started baking. In addition to gingerbread, they used fondant, royal icing, marzipan and candy to build and decorate the structure. Everything was hand piped or shaped – from trees to characters.
