Giant Gingerbread House by Adriano Zumbo, Westfield Parramatta

Westfield Parramatta cel­eb­rated Christmas in part with a col­lab­or­a­tion with Woolworths for a giant 3 m ginger­bread house by Adriano Zumbo on the Level 2 Central Forecourt.

The ginger­bread house was cre­ated live in-centre on 23 November from 4 pm. They were still dec­or­at­ing it by 6 pm the fol­low­ing day with Adriano Zumbo him­self still on site (the bald man second from the left!).

By 25 November, though, it was offi­cially unveiled in all its com­pleted ginger­bread house glory.

As it’s sponsored by Woolworths, all the lol­lies that dec­or­ate it are things you can buy in-store (to make your own?). This is the left wall.

This is the back wall, with Arnott’s Iced Vovos and jam tarts amongst oth­er things.

This is the right wall, com­plete with an Arnott’s Tim Tam chim­ney and jelly bean stud­ded tiles for the roof.

This is the base of the left wall with musk stick flour stems and pep­per­mint leaves.

This is a flower on the left wall with Arnott’s TeeVee flowers as well as jam tart and rasp­berry jube flowers.

We come back after the week­end to find sev­er­al of the Ferrero Rocher chocol­ates miss­ing des­pite signs dir­ect­ing people to not touch or eat the dis­play!

Giant Gingerbread House by Adriano Zumbo was loc­ated at the Central Forecourt, Level 2Westfield Parramatta, 159 – 175 Church St, Parramatta NSW 2150 and dis­played from 25 November 2017.
