This year I decided to make a cityscape candle holder. I chose Copenhagen, a city that is close to my heart, and made buildings inspired by those there. I drew them freehand on the gingerbread dough, mainly from memory, so I’m probably the only one who recognizes Marmorkirken and Magasin! But it was a superfun build, and it adds so much cozyness to our December.
This also functions as an advent candle holder where we light one candle each Sunday, but I wanted to show you how it looks like with all four candles lit. I made little windows with sugar glass and it looks especially lovely when the candles have burned down low and you can see through the windows.
