Three Little Pigs Gingerbread House

Location: The New York Botanical Garden's 2009 Gingerbread Adventures (Bronx, NY)

For her fairy-tale-themed confection, Cake Power's Kate Sullivan constructed an 18-inch-tall gingerbread house featuring three little pigs and a wolf all made of fondant (the original versions, made of modeling chocolate, melted in the Botanical Garden's greenhouse). The house itself, constructed of embossed gingerbread, featured such incredible tiny details as a jellybean-covered fireplace, string licorice rag rug, gumball lamp and vase, windows made of poured blue-tinted hard sugar, and a whimsical hanging portrait of a Star Wars clone trooper drawn in food marker.
