Pink Lady gingerbread replica by /mmhdunn on Reddit

In the latest episode of Humboldt Last Week

Recently a stunning and detailed version of the Pink Lady home in Eureka was crafted as a gingerbread house.

The jaw-dropping edible house, which according to the artist took about 80 hours to craft, went semi-viral on Reddit’s “baking” section with several thousands of interactions worldwide.

The artist, u/mmhdunn, says they’re not a Humboldt County local but rather a huge fan of architecture.

“That’s a real house?” asked one commenter. “Looks exactly like the (‘Coraline’) house…”

“This isn’t food anymore but edible art, how many years of experience do you have?” asked another. “150? This is really nice.”

You can check out some interesting tidbits about the Pink Lady, which according to Trulia recently sold for $1.1M, here.

Update (12.7.20)

We’ve received more information from the Denver-based artist behind this beautiful Pink Lady replica.

“I’m just a big fan of baking and Victorian architecture, and the Pink Lady was a perfect source of inspiration for me,” said Morgan Hamatake. “I sketch and draft my houses by hand before baking and building.”
