Chef Gerald Madero said he used the Cubs as inspiration when he needed to come up with an idea for his restaurant’s annual holiday brunch. He said the entire kitchen staff are Cubs fans, so they thought it was right to make a Wrigley Field replica.

It took a team of chefs 70 hours to create the replica, which features seats make from graham crackers, gelatin windows and a scoreboard made from edible paper.

The players are the only thing that’s not edible, since they’re made from Legos.
