Edible Architecture: Frank Lloyd Wright's Iconic 'Fallingwater' As Gingerbread House

December 23, 2010


Ambitious gingerbread-builders Melodie and Brenton went and created Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic 'Fallingwater' in edible form as their entry in this year's Gingerbread Festival in Orem, Utah. Good looking, guys. I've actually been to see Fallingwater before and I've got to admit, it does look like it was made out candy. Plus I got busted for skinny dipping. haha, crazy acid. FAX AND FIGURES!:

•It took over 12 hours to design

•It took Brenton and I around 40 hours to build and decorate
•There are around 164 different pieces of gingerbread
•It took roughly 12 square feet of gingerbread dough (that's four large batches) to make all the walls, floors and roof
•Over 8 bags of powdered sugar were used to make all the frosting
•It took over 40 sleeves of large Smarties which are used to simulate dry stack stone on the building exterior
•The river and water fall are made up of three batches of hard candy

Sadly, Fallingicing didn't take first prize in the contest, as it was beat off by a stranger in the back of the bus out by 'Candyland Carnival' (picture after the jump), which may or may yes look like Santa vomited up part of his intestines. Mmmm, fat people guts. Don't even act like the French don't eat that shit as a delicacy!

Hit the jump for a bunch more pics and a shot of the house that beat Fallingwater.
