We’ve seen some over-the-top holiday decor in our day, but when it comes to gingerbread houses, this one takes the cake. Pastry chef Georgia Green paired with luxury British retailer veryfirstto.com to create custom gingerbread homes, using the most premium ingredients (like Ceylon cinnamon, Duchy eggs and Echire butter from France) and topped with sea pearls and rubies. (They needed to justify the $78,000 price tag somehow…)
That’s right. This charming little gingerbread house is $78,000 (which doesn’t include the cost of delivery). It contains 150 AAAA-grade South Sea Pearls and a 5-carat unheated Mozambique Ruby, making it the most fashionable gingerbread house ever.
Sadly, this gourmet home is available to UK customers only. (And you were just reaching for your credit card, weren’t you?)
