Picture - Atmosphere - A giant 12ft... London United Kingdom, Wednesday 22nd April 2015

Atmosphere - A giant 12ft high, 8ft wide REAL gingerbread house miraculously appeared on London's famous Southbank this morning as tickets to the UK's newest visitor attraction, Shrek's Adventure! London went on sale with a fairy-tale whizz-bang. The gargantuan 'ticket office' took a talented team of baker eight weeks to create, and was erected overnight much to the delight of passers by who were invited to quite literally take a bite out of it this morning. Made from 700 real gingerbread biscuit tiles edged with 100kg of icing, the ogre-sized house was adorned with 50 huge jelly babies, 60 giant gobstoppers and surrounded by giant meringue boulders and candy canes. The confectionary pop-up is inspired by Shrek and Princess Fiona's honeymoon hideaway, as featured in the movie, Shrek 2. "We wanted to do something totally magical and 'ogre-the-top' to mark the first ticket sales for Shrek's Adventure! London - and what better way than building a truly fairy-tale ticket office?!" commented Helen Bull, General Manager of the soon to open attraction. "It's been wonderful to see people's reactions. It's really brought smiles to faces and they've just loved tucking into gingerbread biscuits, candy canes and lollipops. Its proportions are perfectly ogre-sized and we think Shrek and Donkey would definitely approve. In fact, if they could design their perfect ticket office it would probably be this one!" "It's not often you get to eat the window ledge from an Ogre sized gingerbread house on your way to work," said Elizabeth Broad, 23, from London. "I wouldn't mind having this for breakfast every day. It's a wonderful bit of magic and has certainly made my day - and I've tucked away a lollipop for elevenses!" The new attraction from Merlin Entertainments in collaboration with DreamWorks will bring to life a totally new Shrek adventure featuring a complete cast of fairy tale characters from Shrek and Princess Fiona to Donkey and at London - London, United Kingdom - Wednesday 22nd April 2015
