Mohegan - Second-grade students from Charles Murphy Elementary School in Montville helped Mohegan Sun Executive Pastry Chef Lynn Mansel and his team decorate the casino's annual giant gingerbread house Monday on the retail concourse at Mohegan Sun.
The 28-foot-tall house, constructed of traditional inedible materials underneath, is covered in more than 10,000 gingerbread bricks held in place by 3,500 pounds of royal icing.
