Delidesign gingerbread shop in Vienna combines traditional handicraft with modern design
Don´t expect any cookie-cutter gingerbread men, hearts or stars at delidesign.eu. The designs are as varied as they are surprising, among them skulls, caviar cans, political symbols or warning labels. A number of contemporary artists have contributed designs, creating veritable collectors´ items for design aficionados. All gingerbread items are completely handmade from regional ingredients. Each item is unique, as the icings and decorations are painted – according to tradition – from memory. The number of pastry chefs expert in this complicated craft is small, and high-class gingerbread decoration is time-consuming. It takes up to 4 hours to decorate one gingerbread item, which is why only a small number of designs in limited editions will be available each season – making them all the more valuable.
