Echo Park designers bake up a gingerbread geodesic dome

Scout Regalia Reel 02: Gingerbread Geodesic Dome from Scout Regalia on Vimeo.

You can find geodesic domes in the hills of Glassell Park and along Colorado Boulevard in Eagle Rock. Now, you can build – and eat –  a tiny dome of your own at home.   Echo Park designers Ben Luddy and Makoto Mizutani have created a gingerbread version of the dome popularized by R. Buckminster Fuller, according to the L.A. at Home blog.  Luddy and Miztuani are selling a $25 kit that includes a laser-cut template to build a six-inch tall dome and recipes for gingerbread and icing to cover the shell.  There’s also the handy video above to show how its done.

Perhaps now someone can come up with a Craftsman fruit cake mold.


  1. Amazing! Inspiring! Delicious!

  2. Thanks! Just bought a couple to complete my Christmas shopping! Perfect gift for a family with a baker and an engineer …

  3. If you need decorations for your gingerbread dome project, take a quick trip to Galco’s in Highland Park for a vast selection of old-fashioned candy.
