A Gigantic Alien Xenomorph Made from Gingerbread

This gigantic Alien Xenomorph gingerbread sculpture was made by Norwegian cake designer Carolina Eriksson. The artist used homemade gingerbread and assembled it around an iron frame to create the shape. She then used melted sugar to make the whole thing stick together.

It’s an iron structure inside with sculptured gingerbread on top: …I made an inner skeleton with correct proportions, and then drew pieces/ designs to fit on top of it …I’ve altered the usual recipe a bit to make it stronger – so I wouldn’t recommend for eating, but I’m using twice the amount of syrup, and no baking powder. It makes the gingerbread harder and gives it a smoother surface! …There’s a whole lot of melted sugar to keep it together!
