Edible art (although you probably shouldn’t take that literally)…

Christmas is literally days away and, if you’re anything like us, you’ll be filling yourselves up with festive happenings in Dubai like Santa will hopefully be filling your stocking on Christmas Eve. One of the many marvels of Christmas in Dubai are the larger than life giant gingerbread statues that can be found in the city.

Whether you’ve got little ones in tow or you’re just a big kid yourself, here are some cool ones to check out… 

Dubai Frame at Grand Plaza Movenpick

The chefs at Grand Plaza Movenpick Dubai Media City have created a giant gingerbread replica of the Dubai Frame. When we say giant, we mean it, as it stands at 5.5 metres high and includes 4600 pieces. It frames a huge tree which is adorned with bronze, silver and giant blue baubles. Where better to get that holiday card Christmas snap?
