Cubs Fan Builds Giant Gingerbread Replica of Wrigley Field

It took chef Gerald Madero 70 hours and several chefs to build the 400-pound edible Cubs baseball stadium replica

One Cubs fan is celebrating his team’s historic World Series win in an epically sweet way. Chef Gerald Madero and his team at the Forest Hills Country Club in Rockford, Illinois, has built a replica Wrigley Field made from 400 pounds of gingerbread and edible decorations. The project, which will remain on display until after the holidays, took more than 70 hours to complete — about three times as long as the running time of the World Series itself.

The entire thing — except the Lego players — is edible. The seats are made out of crackers, the scoreboard is edible paper, the windows are gelatin, and every single piece is a perfectly scaled replica of the real Wrigley Field in Chicago.

"Everybody here, we're all Cubs fans, so you know, being that the Cubs won the World Series, we just thought it was right to make Wrigley Field,” Madero told local news station WRBC. “We had to cut and measure templates, square everything off, make sure it all measured out so everything is even. It was a lot of work.”
