Patti Paige from Baked Ideas created an entirely edible typewriter out of Gingerbread to benefit the City Harvest charity.
First we made a model of the typewriter in cardboard, and then baked all the parts and crafted the roller, paper and metal keys out of sugar paste. The “glue” is royal icing, and cookies, stacked up, are the inner supports. The keyboard letters are cookies, iced in ivory and trimmed in silver. The iced gingerbread alphabet letters are frolicking in the sugar snow, sometimes spelling out words (fun, skip, eat, joy.)
The typewriter is currently on display at NYC’s Parker Meridien Hotel. An close-up image is available after the break.
