The towering 7-foot tall cookie structure, baked in homage to a metal monolith discovered last month in Utah leading to global intrigue and multiple copycats, was first discovered Friday at Corona Heights Park, KGO reported.

The gingerbread panels were held together with icing and lined with gum drops, KRON reported.

Ananda Sharma could smell it before he saw it during his morning run.

“It made me smile. I wonder who did it, and when they put it there,” he told KQED.

In a video on social media, it appeared that one person who trekked to see it had even taken a bite.

It is unclear who made it or when it was installed. The cookie crumbled Saturday.

The first mysterious metal monolith was discovered Nov. 18 by a team of biologists counting bighorn sheep in a portion of the southeastern Utah desert. It is still unknown who installed it. Its appearance led to international interest and the creation and discovery of slightly similar copycat structures throughout the world.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
