Gingerbread Village at Desert Ridge and Sparkling Cranberries in Today's Eater's Digest
The largest gingerbread village in the Valley is all set up and ready to be gawked at! "Candy Wonderland" at the JW Marriott Resort is sure to inspire you to attempt to create your own amazing sugary structure this holiday season. The village will feature several handcrafted gingerbread houses, a chocolate river and more Willie Wonka inspired treasures. This not to miss masterpiece was created using 500 pounds of gingerbread, 750 pounds of chocolate and 150 pounds of sugar. It was completed over the course of 400 hours and will be on display to the public from December 6th through January 2nd in the lobby of the Desert Ridge Hotel.
Around the holidays it seems to be a requirement that everything sparkles, cranberries are no exception. Sparkling Cranberries will add a little color and sparkle to your appetizer table or throw some in a little cellophane bag, tie up the top with a pretty ribbon and you have yourself a quick and easy gift.
