Published: 7 January 2014

Christmas may be over, but for Caroline Eriksson the christmas feelings hardly have disappeared. Thanks to a giant gingerbread robot, her contribution in a competition where Norway's "sprøeste" (craziest) gingerbread would be choosen, she now can travel the world.

It took Caroline Eriksson 1.5 weeks to bake and build her gingerbread version of the transformer Optimus Prime. Normally she works as 3D graphic artist and her career started with studiyng Computer Graphics at Luleå University of Technology. The inspiration for the gingerbread Optimus she got through her profession.

The jury was mightily impressed by the level of detail and the 3D feel of her contribution and appointed her as the winner. The prize is a trip for 40,000 NOK. Caroline Eriksson has her sights set on Bora Bora.
