The Broadmoor unveils latest gingerbread creation for holiday season

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

The Broadmoor has unveiled its annual gingerbread creation for the holiday season. Creating a near-life-size structure out of gingerbread has been an annual tradition at The Broadmoor for the past 32 years. 

This year's creation is a 12-foot-tall, 150-square-foot replica of The Broadmoor's Pauline Chapel. The gingerbread chapel was created by 10 master pastry chefs and two carpenters. 

The process took over 200 hours to complete, and includes more than 600 eggs, nearly 1,000 pounds of sugar, and almost 500 pounds of flour. A time lapse video of the creation process can be seen below.
