Gingerbread ship...

Our family has been in Amelia Island, Florida for a few days. This magnificent ship is in the lobby of the hotel and is made of real gingerbread and icing. It smells wonderful!

The bakery chef begins work on this lovely vessel in October. The pieces are made separately and assembled onto a wire frame. It really is a wonder to behold and impresses all who see...and sniff it.

Enjoy the day,

    Thanks for sharing with us~

  2. I just found your blog and love it! I will be following frequently to view your 12 days of Christmas - such a lovely home! This ship is amazing! I've been to Amelia Island twice on business - once to the Ritz & once to the Plantation - and I absolutely loved it! Would love to go there with my family one day...
    Blessings, Patti
