Undersea Gingerbread House

The Crustacean Construction Crew at work! Over 2' tall, my first gingerbread house. Made for the Georgia Aquarium. 100% edible, no supports. All creatures are modeling chocolate.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called THE FONDANT CLUB, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    My roofer looks a bit like this guy... brothers, maybe...

    I am speechless. I am so in love with your concept of this construction crew making this jewel box in the sea.

    Just too cool. I wish this were one of those 360 vids like the real estate people like to do.

    Bravo, Karen!! More! More!

    I saw this cake several years ago at the GA Aquarium, it was the most beautiful, whimsical, gingerbread house ever. The pictures don't do it justice. The animals were represented so authentically. Fantastic job!!!!!!! I"m an aquarium volunteer and it's one of the coolest things I've ever seen in the GA. Aquarium.. Come visit us.
