Food Architecture: Gingerbread High Line

High Line Gingerbread An edible High Line made of gingerbread, frosting, and festive winter plants is now on view at Cookshop.

Edible High Lines are the new trend this holiday season.


You can find the latest creation at Cookshop, a favorite neighborhood restaurant located on the corner of 10th Avenue and West 20th Street.

The mini-High Line, made entirely of gingerbread, frosting, and festive winter plants, captures some of the park’s iconic architectural details, like the art deco railing and the Pentagram-designed High Line “H” logo on the structure’s column. There are even two gingerbread people taking a pleasant wintertime stroll.


This is the second edible High Line we’ve seen this holiday season. At Thanksgiving, our friends at Inhabitat New York City created a High Line centerpiece made of vegetables, sushi containers, and chopsticks. They even put together a tutorial on how to make one for your own holiday table.
