Gingerbread Brooklyn was dreamed up by Ms. Baumann as a way to raise money for City Harvest while doing what she loves best – baking. Renee is no stranger to cookie architecture. Last year, she created a single gingerbread brownstone which was so well-received that she decided to attempt an entire block of edible homes this year.
Don’t forget to click through our gallery to see all of the miniature wonders Gingerbread Brooklyn holds, or go see it for yourself at 61 Local in, of course, Brooklyn. If you’re interested in making your own version (perhaps a Gingerbread Queens?), check out Renee’s DIY tutorial here.
