I am not one to use this phrase very often but…’OMG’! This life sized edible gingerbread playhouse by Dylan’s Candy Shop is seriously like a dream come true. It’s as if all those Hansel & Gretel fantasies came to fruition (minus the being lost in the forest, the evil witch and piping hot oven that is). So what’s the deal with this Gingerbread Playhouse and is it really edible?
Yup, it sure is. It is a “handcrafted” monument to sugar made from 381 lbs of gourmet gingerbread and 517 lbs of royal icing and is decorated with thousands of sweets including cookies, lollipops, gummies, mints and gumdrops. The whole shebang ends up being 6.6. feet tall by about 5 feet wide and about 4 feet wide, pretty much regulation playhouse size.
Now you are probably wondering what over 900 pounds of gingerbread greatness would set you back. This ain’t no box of See’s Candies, this edible effigy of excess sells for $15,000. Interested? You can go to Neiman Marcus here and find out more. Let’s just hope you don’t have an ant or mouse problem in your house!
