We’ve all heard that saying everything is better when it’s in small form. From those cute baby clothes to babies themselves, it’s just not very satisfying to watch them but we also imagine ourselves being that tiny. What if we tell you that you can actually fulfill that wish of yours while also completing that dream of living in a chocolate world of your kid-self. The only difference is that it is not chocolate, it’s gingerbread; and it’s not the world, it’s just home. But in all it’s miniature glory, we present you the MinistryOfMiniatures, the project responsible for making us want to retire in edible gingerbread houses?
Collaborators, Emily Garland & Annemarieke Kloosterhof, are playing and winning the game of papercraft meets gingerbread. These insta trend setters won the 5th place by popular vote for their ‘Gingerbread City’ at the museum exhibition. The Gingerbread & Edible Paper Model looked so real and detailed.
The initial concept sketches – how it all started!
These are the cardboard samples that will soon become gingerbread biscuits!
And now comes the model making!
Imagine icing grass, biscuit soil, lollipop trees and candy land. It’s a little hard to imagine. So now you can stop imagining because it’s true. What? Don’t believe us? See for yourself, these paper animals are edible!
Look at that ‘toy’ house. It’s edible! This vintage gingerbread model won a prize at a museum exhibition.
Quick question: If you lived in an edible house, would you eat it into having no roof over your head?
