On behalf of great Ormond Street Hopsital, alma-nac produced and helped eat a giant edible gingerbread house - a house that was fully consumed by  some 2500 children over the course of three days.

The installation measured 2 x 2 x 3m,  complying with current London Housing Design Guidelines.  Working closely with Konditor and Cook, gingerbread tiles were assessed for strength and expansion and boiled sugar cane was assessed for levels of structural droop.
