11-feet of edible shelter made entirely from scratch.
This holiday season, Casino Del Sol is building a life-size gingerbread house in its hotel lobby from completely edible ingredients, and the unveiling will be at 6 p.m. on Monday, November 26.
Casino Del Sol’s executive chef Ryan Clark and executive pastry chef Gina Skelton have teamed up to make this thing massive with walls up to 11-feet tall. The gingerbread house’s theme is based on Disney’s “Coco,” so it’s going to be rich with bright colors, sugar skulls, and other festive elements.
The Pascua Yaqui Tribal youth group are also helping during the decoration process.
“This is quite an ambitious project, and by far the largest dessert I’ve made in my career thus far,” said Casino Del Sol’s Executive Chef Ryan Clark. “I’m eager for the community to see the final product and experience the holiday season come to life in a special way at Casino Del Sol.”
If you get there quick, the first 100 guests are getting free house-made gingersnap cookies and warm apple cider.
There’s much more happening after its big reveal. Throughout the holiday season, the gingerbread house will be on display for all to take a gander at from November 26 – January 2.
Also, from the day of the unveiling till Friday, December 21, Casino Del Sol will be collecting holiday gift donations for children in need, benefiting Casa de los Niños and Tribal Foster Care.
Casino Del Sol is located at 5655 W. Valencia Rd. and the gingerbread house will be located inside the lobby. For more information, visit casinodelsol.com.
