Every year, fans delight at the sights (and smells) that come from the Haunted Mansion Holiday which sports a brand new — actually edible — gingerbread house in the attraction’s iconic ballroom scene and this year’s confection pays homage to the 50th Anniversary of the Haunted Mansion.
Featuring 15 spirited, spooky and recognizable ghosts made out of gingerbread, the Haunted Mansion gingerbread house stands nearly 10-feet tall, and is made out of approximately 30 pounds of gingerbread, three gallons of egg whites, 120 pounds of frosting and icing, 75 pounds of confectioner’s sugar, 140 pounds of fondant, and more.
Search around the creation as you might find some cookies that themselves are quite literally ghostly including hitchhiking ghosts, the Phantom Five and even Constance in gingerbread form, each ghost ranging from 24 to 30 inches tall.
A team of six culinary cast members from the Disneyland Resort Central Bakery created this year’s gingerbread mansion, which took 13 days to build and decorate. Three of these pastry team members have been part of the Haunted Mansion gingerbread house team since the annual holiday transformation began 18 years ago!
