What is more quintessentially American than a 3-foot-tall Abraham Lincoln Gingerbread Statue? It's completely edible and made with rice krispie treats, chocolate, fondant, royal icing, cookies, and peppermint sticks. This was completed by Patti Paige of Baked Ideas.
Located at Le Parker Meridien in NYC, it's a good thing the statue is some 2,800 miles away from the Neatorama offices. While I would feel very guilty about eating the 16th President's bow tie, eat it I would.
