Artist Sculpts Massive 5-Foot-Tall Gingerbread Castle Unlike Any Other #ArtTuesday

via My Modern Met

Artist Christine McConnell is known for her amazing projects that celebrate the holidays in an unconventional—and often eerie—way. Last winter, she transformed her parent’s house into the witch’s cottage from Hansel and Gretel. It was complete with gingerbread gravestones and terrified gingerbread men. This year, her Christmas-themed endeavor is on a much smaller scale, but equally as incredible. She “tried her hand” at a Gingerbread castle that’s not only massive, but completely edible.

In addition to the eye-catching palace, McConnell’s spread features other tasty goodies. The table has a shortbread Christmas tree with “presents” made from fudge, as well as almond brownie pine cone critters. And one of McConnell’s creations wouldn’t be complete without a touch of spookiness. She made a sugar cookie guillotine to represent the darker events that took place at medieval castles.  (There’s even a beheaded snowman!)
