While I’ll likely never meet Reddit user eudicotyledon or his family, I would so totally like to hang out with them during the holidays and make gingerbread houses. They don’t mess around.
This year they built the Overlook Hotel from The Shining complete with Jolly Rancher blood and a Rice Krispie treat maze.
I hope they never eat it and that it gets shellacked and put on display somewhere.
Take a closer look at the amazing details in the gallery below.
Here’s a little good cheer for the holidays. Star Wars and gingerbread came together at the downtown Seattle Sheraton hotel during their annual gingerbread house event, with proceeds going to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
This year, they had six gingerbread masterpieces in honor of the first six Star Wars films. It has everything from Yoda training younglings, to Grievous and Obi-Wan fighting it out, to the moon of Endor.
If you’re in the Seattle area, the display is up until January 3, 2016. You can also text JDRF5 plus the number of the episode display you’re voting for (JDRF5 6 for example) to 20222 to donate $5 to JDRF.
You can see more pictures of all six displays at Geek and Sundry.
Who says horror fans have to ditch their dark ways come the jolly holiday season?
Apparently it’s actually is possible to celebrate Christmas and your dark side at the same time. At least that’s what Johnny Larocque and Nicole Cooper did when they decided to make a creepy and awesomely twisted gingerbread house inspired by Ash vs Evil Dead and the Evil Dead movies.
What a scene! Fun for the whole family…if you’re the Sawyer family that is.
Jesus. Somebody dip this gingerbread Darth Vader in a preservative and ship it off to Rancho Obi-Wan. It would be a shame to actually eat such a masterpiece.
It was created by the same artistic genius that made that gingerbread Optimus Prime a couple years back.
Check out the complete work below.
The Gingerbread Iron Throne was forged from dragon’s breath (set at 350 degrees) with the swords of vanquished gingerbread men. Truly, it is a monstrous and delicious chair.

Actually, you can just eat your way through Hogwarts. No unlocking spell is necessary.
Ambitious Harry Potter fans have eschewed the traditional gingerbread house for something a little more magical. From quidditch pitches to Hagrid’s hut, these diehard Potter fans went all out with their Hogwarts designs.
For some of us, sweets can be as bad an addiction as meth, so there’s something sort of poetic about a gingerbread version of this Breaking Bad RV and little accompanying Heisenberg & Jesse gingerbread men.
Instructable user thekites not only made this thing of beauty, but was kind enough to give us a tutorial so we can all try to cook one up in our own kitchens.
If you make it, I really hope you add some blue rock candy somewhere just for fun.
Head after the break to see more pictures.
Remember our previous post that highlighted how you can make a gingerbread version of the Millennium Falcon? While a gingerbread Falcon might work for all you rebels and nerf herders out there, I know there are plenty of pro-Empire folk who would love to snack on a holiday treat that packs an Imperial punch. Enter the gingerbread Star Destroyer. There’s no way your tastebuds can repel deliciousness of this magnitude!
