Over a cardboard base that replicates the natural landscape, the 164 pieces of gingerbread [1] are carefully assembled. Forty sleeves of smarties candies are used to mimic the exterior stone from Wright’s building. Intricate details are added like interior staircases. Each cantilevered terrace is then added on top.

A custom recipe [2] for the candy “water” is poured into the areas that have been trimmed out in tin foil. The remainder of the landscape is built up with frosting!

Melodie’s final model has incredible detail with icicles dangling on all of the overhangs. It makes perfect sense that she would be a natural at creating architectural gingerbread greatness, as she studied Landscape Management and Culinary Arts. Kudos to Melodie and thanks for showing how this edible homage to the master of Prairie Style [3] architecture was made.
