From the Mind of Christine McConnell is back and this time she is handling a 500 lb gingerbread replica of the famous Winchester Mansion.

We are still dealing with the sadness and irritation at Netflix for cancelling one of the best shows they’ve ever made, Curious Creations of Christine McConnell. After the premier episode of From the Mind of Christine McConnell on her personal YouTube channel, we finally got our dose of creepy crafting when she refurbished a fold-out couch into a pure piece of art. In episode two, she tackles 500 lbs of gingerbread.

I don’t know if you have tried to put a gingerbread house together, but it’s a huge pain in the butt. It never looks like you envisioned in your head and half of the time, the walls are being held together with 50 lbs of icing, chewed up gum and a prayer. Now, with that in mind, Christine McConnell made a 500 lb replica of the Winchester Mystery House. If your head didn’t hurt just thinking about how much work that is, then you must have the patience of a saint.

Just watching her plan the construction and hand cut all of the special pieces required for the antique architecture is fascinating to see. She had to create her own supports and stencils to make the shapes for the mansion that she needed.

Once all that was baked and partially built, it traveled seven hours to its destination where she put it together and added LIGHTS! As if creating a gingerbread replica wasn’t enough, Christine McConnell added functioning lights. And then the decorating began.

She must have spent hours upon hours adding the little drops of texture onto the gingerbread house. She even created a cameo replica of Sarah Winchester that was stunning to look at. Something I didn’t know about the Winchester Mystery House was that Sarah Winchester really liked spiders and incorporated spiderwebs in windowpanes.

All in all, Christine McConnell did it again and blew us away with her ability to create edible artwork that imitates life. While no one will be eating this masterpiece, it will be at the Winchester Mansion on display for several months.
