An artist has created a gingerbread model of the house from Hollywood hit ‘Home Alone’ and a video of it is being widely shared on the internet.
Disney+ commissioned cake designer Michelle Wibowo of Michelle Sugar Art to recreate the McCallister family house from the Christmas classic to celebrate the film’s 30th anniversary this year.
The edible movie-inspired creation features several intricate details from the film, like a miniature version of protagonist Kevin, and burglars Harry and Marv. It also has props like the Little Nero’s pizza delivery vehicle and the “Oh-Kay Plumbing and Heating Van” used by the robbers.
