Leave it to Wynn’s head cake artist, Flora Aghababyan, to create an over the top gingerbread house. Look a little closer and it’s a reproduction of the Wynn Resort Las Vegas, side by side with the Encore. This takes the idea of a holiday gingerbread house to a whole new level.

Are those really the waterfalls in the front of the hotel that we see from the famous Las Vegas “strip?”

It’s going to take me a few minutes to figure out how the cake is constructed and, more importantly, how Flora makes sure the cake doesn’t collapse.

Why not get into the holiday spirit at the Wynn Las Vegas? If you love desserts more than the main meal, you’ll love the “Sweet Greetings Holiday Dessert tasting on December 15th from 3 pm to 5 pm. You’ll get to meet Chef Flora, along with pastry chef Pierre Gatel and chocolatier David Krzewinski.

Enjoy a demonstration of cake and candy making techniques that will inspire all of us who think dessert and holidays go hand in hand. Oh, and the best part? You get to sample the pastries and desserts!
