Way back in the halcyon university days, a friend and I decided to try out some serious architecture from gingerbread.
Obviously we had a mock up cottage (primarily for the purposes of eating it). The principal innovation was to melt some gummy sweets (in our case, wine gums) into an aperture to create the effect of stained glass window. The guardian, nicknamed malevolent puffin, adds a certain je ne sais quoi to the piece.
Then, inevitably, much as man split the atom, we scaled up. Gingerbread cathedral time (feat. gargoyle)! Let’s also give a shout out to those flying butresses.
