SOUNDBITE: (English): Jon Lovitch, creator GingerBread Lane: "What we have here is the 28th GingerBread Lane. It's the world's largest gingerbread exhibit. It's certified by Guiness out of London. And that means it's all edible. Everything you see behind me is real food, gingerbread, icing or candy. In addition to being the largest one in the world I'd like to think it's one of the most intricate ones. There's over 91 varieties of candy back there, 13-hundred candy canes, 25-hundred pounds of icing, 400 pounds of gingerbread dough and 500 pounds of candy."3.

SOUNDBITE: (English): Jon Lovitch, creator GingerBread Lane: "Candy Cane Place, as it were, is a neighborhood where I put all the storefronts. The most interesting aspects of the village, Jackie's Sweet Shoppe for my beloved wife, Cecil's Pies for my grandfather, Poole and Van Dyke's Mercantile for our two best friends, all those types of things end up going in Candy Cane Place. And that's probably one of my favorite areas. The icing skating rink which is actually directly behind me...that's modeled after an ice rink I worked at as a kid."7.

Zoom out overhead view of GingerBread village-----STORYLINE:GingerBread Lane, a 1.5 ton candy village on display at the New York Hall of Science boasts a Guinness world record for the largest gingerbread exhibit. The completely edible structure took chef Jon Lovitch a full year to create, which he did from his home. Lovitch says there are "over 91 varieties of candy back there, 1,300 candy canes, 2,500 pounds of icing, 400 pounds of gingerbread dough and 500 pounds of candy." The sophisticated candy village contains 152 gingerbread houses along with a fire station, a town hall and an underground candy subway station. The intricate front row of shops coined 'Candy Cane Place' are named after Lovitch's own friends and family."The most interesting aspects of the village, Jackie's Sweet Shoppe for my beloved wife, Cecil's Pies for my grandfather, Poole and Van Dyke's Mercantile for our two best friends, all those types of things end up going in Candy Cane Place," says Lovitch. He even modeled an ice skating rink based on one he worked at as a child. Although Lovitch doesn't specify an exact figure on how much the 300-square-foot GingerBread Lane village has cost him to produce, he personally finances it as a hobby, but he will admit the costs are well within the thousands. Lovitch says he plans to top his own Guinness record next year, but doesn't want to divulge details for other who might be vying to break his record. (****END****)
