Ultimate Gingerbread House: The Overlook Hotel from the Shining

If you thought your gingerbread house was great this year, prepare to be knocked down a few pegs. I present to you the ultimate gingerbread house: the Overlook Hotel from Stanley Kubrick’s rendition of The Shining. Imgur user agkeeling does gingerbread houses with their family each year, and this year decided to recreate a piece of cinematic history in dessert form.


The Overlok Hotel, complete with maze!

They even went so far as to recreate several iconic scenes from the film, also in delicious dessert form:


“Come play with us, Danny”

My favorite has to be the melted Jolly Rancher gushing blood, though:


Mmm, delicious.

You can check out more of the detailed photos and different iconic scenes on the original Imgur thread, here, including a decaying gingerbread woman. (It’s about as appealing as you might imagine.) Agkeeling asserts that everything pictured is made of gingerbread, icing, fondant, candy, and Rice Krispie Treats!
