From Halloween through the holiday season the Haunted Mansion is decked out in a "The Nightmare Before Christmas" motif for Haunted Mansion Holiday. One of the coolest highlights has got to be the haunted gingerbread house in the mansion's ballroom.
It's been a fixture since 2001. This year's design, "Haunted Mansion Tombstone Cake," is six feet high and four feet wide.
And for the first time ever the "house" will have animated projections. The projectors are such a new technology that there are only a few in the United States, and some are here at our very own Haunted Mansion!
It took three chefs, a team of electricians, engineers and designers to create the tasty (and creepy) "tombstone cake." And although the house looks decorated with candy, it's not. All the decorations are actually created from fondant and royal icing.
