Maid of Gingerbread

3D gingerbread sculptures and edible art

Ever longed for a bespoke 3D gingerbread sculpture to wow your guests with? No…? Well you will once you’ve seen Maid of Gingerbread’s a-mazing creations.

Emily Garland is a food artist specialising in 3D biscuit building, producing everything in her rather magical sounding gingerbread studio in Hackney, East London. Drawing on years of baking experience and a passion for woodwork and construction, she founded Maid of Gingerbread in 2010 and has since produced show-stopping edible centrepieces for a wide range of clients including Zizzi, Lily Vanilli, D&AD, Doisy & Dam, Harrods and Fortnum & Mason.

She has become well known for her original, modern designs and intricate details, always incorporating a sense of fun and colour into her work. I mean, check out her jaw-dropping gingerbread Castle Howard complete with gingerbread train that she made for an installation with Bompas & Parr for this Christmas year!

From grand houses and big boats to fun robots, sport cars, backgammon sets and unicorn piñatas – Emily can make your hearts desire in gingerbread, and not only does it look amazing, but it tastes delicious too.

If you’d like to have a go at some 3D biscuit building yourself then Emily also makes and sells some brilliant baking kits that you can use at home (I mean, who wouldn’t want to make their own 3D chocolate biscuit boom box I ask you?) and she is also available for fun and unique gingerbread construction workshops, either in her studio for individuals/small groups, or at a venue of your choice for larger bookings.
