The Great Australian Gingerbread House by Anna Polyviou

Standing at 4 metres high and 3.6 metres long, it's safe to say this is the biggest Gingerbread House in Sydney (maybe even Australia?) this Christmas! Celebrity chef, Anna Polyviou and her team of magical elves have been working around the clock for the last five days to create the giant lifesize Australian Gingerbread House for Westfield Sydney in the lead up to the BIG unveiling on Saturday 4 December.

Celebrity chef, Anna Polyviou is at the helm of The Great Australian Gingerbread House. 

The incredible masterpiece took 2,000 gingerbread ‘bricks’ (one tonne of dough), 400 kilograms of CSR Pure Icing Sugar, 450 kilograms of lollies, and 100 packets of Arnott’s Iced VoVos to make! 

"We’ve all had a tough couple of years, so it was really important for me that we put the magic back into the festive period! I really wanted to go all out this year so I’m thankful to be working with Westfield Sydney. They always bring on the magic of the holidays but this year we’ve gone bigger and better than ever!" says Anna. 

In true gingerbread-house style, the festivities on the day will be sweet and very merry, followed by magical festivities running throughout December:
