It’s called Gingerbottabad, and it’s a scale replica of Osama bin Laden’s compound in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad.
The Army Times reports:
An Army military intelligence officer stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C., revealed on Twitter a series of pictures of “Gingerbottabad” this afternoon, his gingerbread version of Osama bin Laden’s hideout.
Steve — who asked that his full name not be used, “so I don’t limit my career options” — turned four pounds of dough into a scale model of the compound that sheltered bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan, until SEAL Team 6 came for him on May 2, 2011.
It took Steve several days to convert his tasty vision into a rudimentary rendering in cookies and icing. He used 63 pieces of gingerbread, two sandwich bags of icing, two candy canes and a few Legos, he said.
He added toy Army men and a model UH-60 for the SEAL team’s crashed Blackhawk, made dirt from crumbled graham crackers and created a courtyard from dyed-green coconut shreds.
