New York City's Oceana will display a gingerbread lighthouse crafted by pasty chef Jansen Chan at the restaurant's raw bar throughout the holiday season. The entire tower, which took more 75 hours of labor to construct, is edible. It contains more than 1,800 pieces of candy and stands over 4 feet tall. Each night the "lantern room" is lit with a wax candle, which illuminates through blue colored poured sugar. The lighthouse was erected Nov. 24 and will undergo demolition on Jan. 4, 2010. 0
