The Montage Laguna Beach resort is showcasing a gingerbread village display through Wednesday, complete with a miniature train and make-believe cottages designed by executive pastry chef Lee Smith and his team.

Dubbed the Fairytale Valley Gingerbread Train Journey, the display includes edible materials, including (of course) gingerbread, chocolate and sponge cake. Smith and his team took three weeks to complete the piece.
