Titled “ A New Fashioned Christmas “, the film has whimsical scenes of . All of the storefront windows recreate whimsical scences from the film entitled “A New Fashioned Christmas.” In addition to windows donning ballerinas, fantastical sleepovers, and a pony-drawn carriage, this gingerbread recreation of the Selfridges building was installed by store workers overnight , and catches the eye of all who pass by! Shoppers with deep pockets can also take home a smaller  gingerbread model of the store  (shown in lead photo) that can be previewed in the Selfridges food hall. images via Selfridges 2. Santa’s German Gingerbread Village at the Sheraton Princess An annual tradition at the  Sheration Princess Kaiulani , Executive Chef Ralf Bauer has created an edible winter wonderland, which this year is themed “Hawaii and the World, a Global Holiday Celebration.”  The Chef and his team spent over 800 hours designing, constructing and setting up the village which includes landmark buildings from around the world, as well as local Hawaiian architectural icons. The village replicates in yummy baked goods the Eiffel Tower, London’s Tower Bridge, a Japanese Pagoda, plus an entire German village with medieval churches, bell towers, train stations, a carousel, a skating rink, and a castle to replicate the homeland of Chef Bauer. The construction required 250 gallons of icing, 150 pounds of dark chocolate, 50 pounds of white chocolate, and 90 sheets of gingerbread. The village will be on display through January 2nd. 3. Hurricane Sandy Candycrane In reaction to being shuttered for more than a week surrounding the events of Hurricane Sandy, executive Chef  Emile Castillo at Norma’s at  Le Parker Meridien Hotel  built a 5-foot-tall replica of the highly publicized fallen crane that caused the evacuation of their building.  The crane dangled off of One57 , a neighboring high-priced residential project still in development. Playfully called the “Candycrane” this structure is part of a group of architectural gingerbread works showing at the Le Parker Meridien through January 3rd in order to raise charity funds to benefit CityHarvest .
