This is what the world's first gingerbread house looks like


One of the most deeply rooted Christmas traditions in Germany is the making of gingerbread houses whose first literary reference to tradition can be found in the story of Hansel and Gretel, by the Brothers Grimm, as well as in the short opera based on the famous lost children. It is precisely this opera one of the musical representations that, with the passage of time, has become a Christmas tradition, which has finally resulted in the fact that, since the XNUMXth century, the Germans manufacture little houses with gingerbread that are later placed in the windowsill.

As tradition dictates, the design of these gingerbread houses must be inspired by the witch's house from the Hansel and Gretel story, that is, a simple house that must be full of decorative motifs made with all kinds of Candys. With this in mind, it is no wonder that William kempton, from the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (Norway), has decided to create his own little house but, as a good engineer, using the most current technology available to him.

Create your own gingerbread house in just 4 simple steps.

The result of this work is nothing less than the manufacture of the world's first gingerbread house created by using 3D printing technologies. As you can see in the video that is located just above these lines, the house has been manufactured following four simple steps, create the dough, the computer design of the house you want to obtain, load a 3D printer specially designed to create food with the dough and wait for it to make the house to later decorate it to our liking.
