Frozen in Time – 2014 Gingerbread Display

Creative confections are always part of the holiday season at RLPS Architects, and this year’s display celebrates our firm’s 60th anniversary with a Frozen-themed holiday featuring the bustling town of Arendelle complete with a town square, ice castle and fishing pier as well as the frozen tundra, ice mountain and diamond mine. Guests at our annual client party voted on their favorites and here are photos of the winning building and accessory entries.


Drawing from images of Scandinavia, employees and their families spent countless hours transforming various edible materials into picturesque cottages, unique shops and mining operations. The candy structures are positioned along a fishing pier made of pretzels and mountains forested by ice cream cone trees coated in sugar sprinkle foliage and icing snow. The raw building materials for these creations included over 70 pounds of Charms hard candy, 30 gallons of icing and more than 50 pounds of candy, pasta, crackers and cereals.
