Has Dylan Lauren been listening to a continuous loop of Sammy Davis singing "Candyman?" The CEO of Dylan's Candy Bar is bringing out her inner Gretel with a more-than-six-foot-tall edible gingerbread house she's selling through Neiman Marcus.
Guaranteed to give the kiddies a sugar high that'll last well into the new year, the almost 400 pounds of gingerbread and 517 pounds of royal icing has been shaped into an over-the-top playhouse with lollipop buttresses and a sweets-embedded roof. And isn't it worth $15K to keep the little ones occupied for a week or so? (Oh yes, you read that right -- maybe we all have a future in candy-playhouse construction.)
Yes, Hansel, you can even eat the dishes.
