Food Artists Create Stunningly Accurate Candy Versions of Famous Art Galleries

Check out these incredible gingerbread models of the Louvre, the Tate Modern, and more.

If you’re planning on using the last little bit of this Christmas season to build a gingerbread house, just give up now. Or at least don’t watch this video before you start building, because it’s going to show you how some serious food artists throw down with gingerbread architecture.

Food-art duo Harry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin teamed up with Dylan’s Candy Bar to create incredible models of museums you can hardly believe are made entirely from candy.

The food stylists chose to recreate seven iconic and “architecturally interesting” galleries: Guggenheim, the Louvre (pictured above), the Tate Modern in London, the Karuizawa in Nagano, the Museum Aan de Stroom in Antwerp, the Maxxi in Rome, and the Museo Soumaya in Mexico City. Hargreaves and Levin used candy legos for bricks, melted rock candy for glass, and, of course, tons of gingerbread.

With your average DIY gingerbread house, eating it is half the fun, but not with these candy museums. Hargreaves admitted that after a few days the houses get stale and even start to smell. Not that we like to see candy go to waste, but it would be almost painful to see anyone bite into one of these impressive creations.
