Throughout the season pastry chefs will bring a bit of cool “Frozen” fascination to our warm winter days, with a stunning, hand-made pastry showpiece. This year’s display will include two giant macaron trees with over 400 glittering macarons. A white chocolate tree will be the centerpiece, decorated with over 100 Mickey Mouse gingerbread cookies. The top of the tree will be adorned with everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf. The wintery scene will be complete with delicate sugar ice trees and snow babies frolicking in the “snow” with Santa Stitch. Sounds absolutely wonderful, doesn’t it?
Make sure to indulge yourself with candy cane Mickey macarons, holiday caramel apples, gingerbread spiced cream cheese coffee cake, peppermint brownies and much more, all available for purchase.
Plus, exclusive Aulani holiday merchandise will be available, like ornaments, so you can have a keepsake of your Aulani yuletide memories on your Christmas tree for years to come.
