What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Delicious New York

For the first time ever, the Museum of the City of New York challenged local bakers to make gingerbread replicas that represented their boroughs. The event, known as Gingerbread NYC, received entries from all over the city, and a panel of NYC-based bakers and artists judged the competition. The winners’ work is on display through January 8, 2023, at 1220 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street.

All decorations on the structures must be 100% edible, and the main structure had to be at least 75% gingerbread. The hardest part, once you got past the engineering, was navigating the city’s flawed streets to get the pieces to the museum in one piece. That must have been so stressful!

You can learn more about Gingerbread NYC: The Great Borough Bake-Off on the exhibit’s website.

  1. That appears to be ‘n’ scale track. I wonder if it is pluged in, if a train or street car would run on it. Ok, I totallly enjoyed looking at each one and trying to look deep in most to be sure I don’t miss a tiny detail. Love it — Hal

  2. Amazing. As someone who only ever manages to construct gingerbread hovels or even gingerbread demolished buildings, I can appreciate the skills that comes into these impressive creations.
