This is the gingerbread Venom bust created by Norwegian gingerbread artist Caroline Eriksson. As you can see, it’s totally nuts. Some more info from Caroline while I try to take a selfie tongue-kissing the thing without breaking it:
Finished my gingerbread symbiote bust after a couple of weeks and a gazillion hours! I tried out a gingerbread “clay” recipe for this which actually allows for sculpting in a more traditional way, amazing!! Everything except the base is edible – the drool is made of isomalt and piping gel, and it is airbrushed with edible colours..
But how does it taste? Because I remember as a kid we’d make gingerbread cookies to hang on the Christmas tree as ornaments and my little sister would still be sneaking them off the tree and eating them like mid-January. Haha — isn’t that right, Becky? She’s also been known to eat Santa’s cookies!
