Home Alone House Recreated In Gingerbread To Mark 30th Anniversary

It's one of our best-loved Christmas films - and now, Home Alone has been brought to us in a more digestible form.

Award-winning artist and cake designer Michelle Wibowo has recreated the McCallister family house from the classic 1990 film to celebrate its 30th anniversary.

The 1.7 metre replica, which is all entirely edible, is so detailed that it even features the Oh-Kay plumbing van, the Little Nero's delivery car and miniature figures of Kevin (Macauley Culkin) and the two burglars he sees off (played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern).

The entire piece took over 300 hours to make and had been commissioned by Disney+ to mark 30 years since Home Alone was originally released.

And no detail has been scrimped on, with the scene including 63 trees, 33 windows, 14 pizza boxes and six lampposts, as well as Kevin's treehouse, the numerous booby traps and the state in the driveway all having been lovingly crafted.

The magical scene will now be placed at the Oak Centre for Children and Young People at The Royal Marsden in Surrey where it will go on display for paediatric patients.

Speaking about her extravagant gingerbread house, Michelle said: "I jumped at the chance because it is one of my favourite Christmas movies - it doesn't really feel like Christmas in our house until we have seen it at least twice!

"I had so much fun making it look festive and I loved making those cheeky characters Kevin and burglars Harry and Marv.

"The scene also includes the infamous paint cans, the broken statue and the Christmas wreath on their front door - I hope everyone will enjoy spotting iconic details from the movie!"

General manager for Disney+ EMEA, Lucy Bradley-Jones, added: "I can't quite believe Home Alone turns 30 this month but it still makes me laugh as much as the first time I saw it all those years ago.

"This film, along with a whole host of other festive favourites, Hollywood blockbusters and brand new originals are guaranteed to fill you all with festive cheer and we're looking forward to Disney+ being a firm favourite with everyone this Christmas."
