Eat Inside A Life-Size Gingerbread House In Arizona This Winter

Editor’s Note: The Dove Mountain Ritz-Carlton has confirmed that the gingerbread house decor is no longer a tradition at the hotel during Christmastime.

Decorating a gingerbread house is an age-old activity during the holiday season, and one Arizona hotel has taken the concept to a whole new level. The Ritz-Carlton at Dove Mountain boasts a life-sized gingerbread house that doubles as a restaurant. Crazy as that sounds, it gets even better. Why? Because the structure is 100% real, made with actual flour, sugar, and candy.
