MDLNY's Fredrik Eklund Just Won Christmas with This Gingerbread Replica of His Connecticut House
Celebrity realtor Fredrik Eklund has a unique property to show off this holiday season that’s totally off the market.
“It really is architecturally accurate!” Eklund writes on his Instagram of the gingerbread house, which perfectly mimics the property’s chimneys, windows and even the landscaping. “My favorite part is the little red Santa on his sled up on the roof!”
Admittedly, the 39-year-old had help making the impressive treat, complete with holiday decorations and reindeer hoofs up on the housetop. He reached out to Swedish pastry chef and seasoned gingerbread house maker Dorotea Malmegard, who, Eklund writes, finished the edible estate with “such perfection.”

Although the “cookie house” would look right at home in either his weekend getaway or his Tribeca apartment, Eklund plans on entering it in “the biggest gingerbread house competition in the world,” which is sponsored by his real estate brokerage in Stockholm.
This elaborate DIY is proof enough that the holiday spirit is alive and well for Eklund, but just in case you weren’t completely convinced, he promises this: “Now just wait until you see what I’ll be up to this Christmas…I’ll be going all out!”
