Have you ever made a gingerbread house? If so, you can appreciate all the work that went into creating the world’s largest gingerbread pirate ship. The S.S. Ginger Amelia was on display at the Ritz-Carlton on Amelia Island.
The S.S. Ginger Amelia
The S.S. Ginger Amelia was a tribute for the legends and lore of the historic Amelia Island. Amelia Island was ruled briefly by Privateer Luis Aury. So, the design was inspired by Aury’s the early 19th century vessel, The ‘Mexican Congress’.
Edible details include, a crew of carved pirates finished in fondant frosting, gingerbread cannons, chocolate cannon balls, a treasure chest of sweets and over 600 baked gingerbread pieces.
High school students of the Nassau County Boys and Girls Club assisted with the ship’s preparation.
