Bakers have previously fashioned gingerbread monuments based on world-famous landmarks such as the Empire State Building, Taj Mahal, and Osama Bin Laden’s compound. The recent monolith discoveries is something new that they have decided to try it out.

The first metal structure was found in Utah’s Red Rock Country. Since then, social media users have been mesmerized by the creative designs emerging in California, Romania, North Carolina, Texas, and England that copied the structures. 

On Christmas Day, it was reported that an edible, 7-foot gingerbread monolith was found in San Francisco’s Corona Heights Park but eventually fell the next day. Several residents took photographs of the structure and posted them on social media, USA Today reported.

San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department General Manager Phil Ginsburg said, “Looks like a great spot to get baked,” after being informed of the existence of the “gingerlith.” He was considerate of the struggles people have experienced with the COVID-19 virus and decided not to be a prude. He added, “We will leave it up until the cookie crumbles.”

Many people believe the gingerlith toppled over due to the strength of the wind after watching the videos of the structure. One person was seen taking a bite out of the scrumptious delicacy.
