gingerbread tardis

Geeks do amazing things with gingerbread. I am floored every year by the creative designs and decorations people come up with, and this TARDIS decorated for Christmas is freaking delightful. Redditor Fortunekitty is actually a cake artist who works at a bakery and that helps to explain why this spaceship looks so beautiful. She wrote a handy tutorial in case you’d like to put your own TARDIS together; as far as I’m concerned, gingerbread is year-round fun and not just limited to the holidays. Happy baking!

gingerbread tie fighter 1

You don’t need fancy schmancy technology to fly into space – you just need gingerbread and imagination! Dace Campbell makes a delicious Star Wars creation every year for the holidays, and he modeled this year’s dessert on a Hasbro TIE Fighter. It looks menacing but also tasty. I spot licorice and dried fruit in the design, and I love that the cockpit actually opens to reveal a pilot. Look out Rebels! You don’t stand a chance against all this sugar.

Grab yourself a deck of standard playing cards, download the PDF for Gingerbread Kaiju, and get ready for some tasty gaming fun. This game even comes with a recipe so you can make your own monsters that you’ll end up eating through the course of the game. The whole thing is themed like a classic monster movie and it’s your job to stomp your gingerbread kaiju through Tokyo, collecting resources and fighting each other along the way. The best part is that when you inflict damage, you get to eat off the affected bits. Omnomnom!

Transform and omnomnom! This gingerbread Optimus Prime was made by a friend of redditor downvotedagain who clearly has more talented friends than the rest of us. My gingerbread house is a lopsided mess. This one is a fully-featured Autobot and it looks to stand a good 3′ tall with every little piece of armor represented in gingerbread style.

death star ginger cookies

It certainly took buckets of sweat to build the second Death Star, but this gingerbread version was built with love. The space station recently took the prize in a gingerbread tournament at The Swedish Centre for Architecture. Twelve people worked on the Love Star, and they used about 1,200 heart-shaped gingerbread cookies to build up the layers and innards of the giant weapon. I’m impressed and also tempted to shove my face into the under construction side and start eating.

This Adventure Time Candy Kingdom would make for a tasty treat next time you get the munchies. It’s made of gingerbread along with fondant and assorted candies like Airheads, some white chocolate grass, and cotton candy trees. It was created by redditor I Have a Fluffy Cat who does in fact have a cat that tried to sample the kingdom midway through the process.

These gingerbread dice are the perfect thing for your next game night. They’re made from carefully arranged graham crackers into the shapes of a D20, D4 and D6. If you still keep rolling ones, just eat them and be done with them forever.

hogwarts christmas cake 1

Hogwarts has a long list of charms, and one of them is definitely the decorations in the Great Hall. The vast dining area especially comes alive around holidays; the Christmas touches are probably my favorite. Baker Mimicafe Union has come up with an edible version of the room for Bake a Christmas Wish. The structure appears to be made from gingerbread, and I can only imagine what all the interior details are constructed from – they look too lovely to eat!

sleeping beauty castle full

I’m so glad I live in a world where people decide to make amazing gingerbread creations like this imagining of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.

Made by The Cookie Architect, this amazing gastronomical construct features a sleeping Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip fighting the dragon Maleficent. The detail is amazing and the whole thing is just…wow.

I wouldn’t want to eat it. I’d want to play with it.
