Read more articles by


There’s nothing cookie-cutter about architectural landmarks such as Tate Modern, the Louvre, or the Guggenheim Museum – even in gingerbread form.

That’s what artists Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves have shown with their sweetened replicas of renowned art galleries and museums. Using gingerbread, cotton candy, liquorice, and bubblegum, the duo have painstakingly recreated the cultural centres, albeit on a much smaller (and presumably tastier) scale.

The finished products are edible and surprisingly realistic-looking.
