Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Gingerbread Shop

Here at The Worley Gig, we are always on the hunt for cool Pink Things to bring our readers, and here is a good one. The Yucaipa-based Gingerbread Shop was spotted by me a few days after Christmas at downtown Riverside’s Festival of Lights, where they’ve parked for at least the last three years. The Google informs me that this Bright Pink A-frame pop-up bakery is an offshoot of a bakery at Santa’s Village (a small park with kiddie rides that I recall visiting as a child), and for a time was a fixture at the Inland Center in San Bernardino. The shop serves up delicious desserts, including cinnamon rolls, apple crisp and, of course, gingerbread cake and gingerbread men, as well as hot beverages. The Gingerbread Shop is located on the Main Street Pedestrian Mall, on the north side of Mission Inn Avenue. Unfortunately, the Festival of Lights runs only through January 4th, 2014, so you’ll have to wait for next year to check it out!

  1. Hey! Thanks for the “shout out”! My family own The Gingerbread Shop. We love going to the Mission Inn every year. Hope to be there again this year! We affectionately call the shop, “The Pink Lady”. It was built in 1961! Originated in Santa’s Village, then Inland Center Mall.then the fair circuit. You can find us at the Del Mar Fair in June/July also.

    1. Cristine, sorry so late seeing this comment..after 55 years participating, we do not do L A County anymore, unfortunately. We knew we had many loyal followers there, but the fair decided to pull a “Wal-Mart” and let the big guys take over the grounds and dispense with the “Mom’s and Pop’s”. They are paying the price for that decision. Their numbers are way down in attendance and the guests are very upset with the “New and Improved” fair. If they ever get their acts together, we will go back. In the meantime, you can find us at the Mission Inn Festival of Lights all thru the holiday season. “Like” us on Facebook for more info on that event. We will keep you updated.
