Oslo-based baker Caroline Eriksson takes gingerbread houses to the next level. Using this edible medium, she creates striking sculptures inspired by movies and media that will make you make a double shot. Each one has incredibly realistic details that make it hard to believe it is modeled from gingerbread.
Eriksson has been making delicious works of art for almost 10 years. “New techniques and recipes I’ve developed along the way now also allow me to work with gingerbread in the same way as clay – I can shape a soft, pre-baked gingerbread dough and let it air dry,” she explains. My Modern Met. “This opens up so many more possibilities for what can be created. Depending on the shape and size of the creation, I either only use gingerbread – which makes it completely edible or have a fixture of steel wire and foil to fill the structure. When I’m happy with my sculpture, I use a Dremel tool to fine-tune details and then airbrush it with edible colors to give it more contrast and life. “
Her incredible portfolio includes sculptures depicting film characters such as Great woman Guardians of the GalaxyMarried from Spider Manand Optimus Prime from Transform. Some of these are almost life-size in structure, while others are smaller in size. And although they vary in appearance, they have a common inspiring theme: imaginative characters. “I’m really into all things sci-fi, fantasy and horror, and I’m fascinated by fictional characters and monsters,” Eriksson tells My Modern Met.
