12/04: Gingerbread Structure Unveiling at One Ocean
An annual holiday tradition and community-anticipated event since 2008, One Ocean Resort & Spa’s culinary team wows visitors with the unveiling of a surprise gingerbread structure. A tasty holiday tradition that evokes wide-eyed amazement by both young and old is taking place on Monday, December 4th, at 3:30pm. An edible work of art, the imaginative life-size gingerbread structure is the brainchild of the talented pastry team, who spends countless hours planning and baking the structure. Following in the footsteps of the past years’ delightful surprise designs, including a life-size Gingerbread Train, Elves Cottage and a giant Santa’s Slay to name a few, this year’s structure will surprise all while creating a terrific holiday photo opportunity for onlookers.
