The Salt Lake Tabernacle in Gingerbread
The world-famous Salt Lake Tabernacle is the home of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square. It is renowned for its excellent acoustics, and boasts an 11,000-pipe organ.
It now also comes in gingerbread.
This 25"x16" replica stands 9 inches tall at the top of the roof. Inside, it showcases the Choir, Orchestra, and pipe organ. The entire structure, made of gingerbread, icing, and candy, is 100% edible, excluding only the aluminum foil ground on which it stands.
