Delidesign gingerbread shop in Vienna combines traditional handicraft with modern design

Don t expect any cookie-cutter gingerbread men, hearts or stars at The designs are as varied as they are surprising, among them skulls, caviar cans, political symbols or warning labels. A number of contemporary artists have contributed designs, creating veritable collectors items for design aficionados. All gingerbread items are completely handmade from regional ingredients. Each item is unique, as the icings and decorations are painted – according to tradition – from memory. The number of pastry chefs expert in this complicated craft is small, and high-class gingerbread decoration is time-consuming. It takes up to 4 hours to decorate one gingerbread item, which is why only a small number of designs in limited editions will be available each season – making them all the more valuable.
