Gingerbread Village 2019

Sugar, spice and all things nice – Epicure’s Gingerbread Village has a new home in the heart of the Melbourne CBD. Now located at Level 1 St Collins Lane, this year’s village is our biggest yet! Over 600kg of gingerbread, 460kg of royal icing and 200kg of marzipan has been lovingly sculpted into some of Melbourne’s most iconic landmarks.

Take a peek inside, and you’ll see Gingerbread Villagers strolling around some familiar favourites, such as Luna Park and Federation Square, and some wonderful new additions – Melbourne’s beloved Shrine of Remembrance and a Royal Botanical Gardens.

EPICURE'S pastry chefs will also be baking and selling delicious treats – the perfect Christmas gifts for friends and family!
