The McCallister family house from Home Alone has been recreated in gingerbread to celebrate the film's 30th anniversary.

Wait, what?! Home Alone is thirty years old - when did that happen?

To celebrate DIsney+ commissioned a very special cake in honour of the much-loved Christmas movie. 

Award-winning artist and cake designer Michelle Wibowo created the incredible design, which took over 300 hours to make.

The 1.7 metre edible replica even features the Oh-Kay plumbing van used by Wet Bandits Harry and Marv and the Little Nero's pizza delivery car as well as figures of Kevin, played by Macaulay Culkin, and the two burglars, played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern.

Wibowo began by studying the architecture and exterior of the family home in the Chicago suburbs, and sketched designs of the different features, before baking the gingerbread and recreating the film's famous set and best-loved moments.



The scene includes Kevin's treehouse, complete with tyre swing, the paint cans used in one of the booby traps, an icing figure of Kevin's neighbour Marley and the statue in the driveway that is continuously knocked over throughout the film

It includes 63 trees, 33 windows, 14 pizza boxes and six lampposts.



Wibowo said: "I jumped at the chance because it is one of my favourite Christmas movies - it doesn't really feel like Christmas in our house until we have seen it at least twice!

"I had so much fun making it look festive and I loved making those cheeky characters Kevin and burglars Harry and Marv.



"The scene also includes the infamous paint cans, the broken statue and the Christmas wreath on their front door - I hope everyone will enjoy spotting iconic details from the movie!"'
