Edmonton, CANADA - Some Harry Potter fans at a bakery in Edmonton, Canada, took their love for the series to the next level with a giant gingerbread house replica of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
According to an article from Insider, the massive and completely editable gingerbread house stands to be at least three feet tall and was created by Duchess Bake Shop.
The unique design is made 100% of sugar, candy includes the wooden bridge, the staircase down the train stop where the Hogwarts Express passes through, and the many turrets of Hogwarts' towers.
Gingerbread Hogwarts is finally here!! It is 100% edible, made from gingerbread, sugar, and candy—stop by the Bake Shop to see it in person through the holidays. Just like in previous years you can enter to WIN a chance to DESTROY the castle if you bring a donation of new socks for the @bissellcentre. Thank you @g_beggs @kelseyfj and @cafelinnea for your incredible hard work—all those late nights were worth it! #duchessbakeshop #gingerbreadhogwarts #gingerbread #gingerbreadcastle #hogwarts #cafelinnea
To make the replica even cooler, it's creators at the bakery teamed up with a local non-profit that helps those in poverty, the Bissell Center, and is accepting donations of socks, new winter mitts, and hats for those in need.
In donating, you then get a chance to "destroy" or eat the beautiful creation.
If you haven't seen the Gingerbread Hogwarts yet there is still time! We have been overwhelmed by the incredibly generous donations of new socks for the @bissellcentre (we've collected over 5,000 pairs so far!!) and we are now also happily accepting donations of new winter mitts and hats for those in need. With every donation you will be entered to win a Gingerbread Castle Demolition Party for you and your friends—see in-store for details! We will have the Gingerbread Hogwarts on display at the Bake Shop until January 13th, so bring your friends and family to see it it person! #gingergreadhogwarts #gingerbreadcastle #duchessbakeshop #bissellcentre
