Gingerbread Sistine Chapel

Posted: Updated:

  A Tulsa Retirement Center is getting into the Christmas spirit in a big way.  A chef has built a replica of the Sistine Chapel out of gingerbread.

  The display is located at the Inverness Retirement Village at 71st Street and 33rd West Avenue.  It also features two traditional gingerbread houses.

  The display has become a tradition at the center.  Their chef creates the houses, then they are auctioned off for charity.  This year, proceeds will go to the Sapulpa Women & Children's Center.

  It's a big production.  Executive Chef Omar Galban says it took about 3 weeks of planning, then another 3 weeks to bake enough gingerbread.  It took another week to assemble the creations.  The houses needed 600 pounds of gingerbread and 300 pounds of icing.
