Imagine candy cane doorways, peppermint windows and a gumdrop roof on your house.  Now imagine almost 500 of them!  

You’ll be able to see this sweet tooth lover’s dream neighborhood when GingerBread Lane arrives at LICM.

GingerBread Lane highlights the Museum’s “hands-on” approach, as every house and storefront is baked, built and decorated by chef Jon Lovitch.  Lovitch has overseen the architecture of multiple confectionery displays across the country since 1994.  These masterful designs have enabled him to claim the Guinness World Record holder title for the largest gingerbread village four times; each time beating his own record-setting accomplishment.

Each year, Jon Lovitch creates a new design for the layout and for some of the house changes, so each display and each season brings new delights,

Every one of the 485 structures on display is crafted entirely of edible components.  How many candy types can you find?

The sweet construction project for Long Island Children’s Museum took 800 hours over 10 months to create. 

Enjoy this sweet ending to a challenging 2020!

GingerBread Lane is supported in part through a gift from People’s United Bank.
