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.
They even went so far as to recreate several iconic scenes from the film, also in delicious dessert form:
My favorite has to be the melted Jolly Rancher gushing blood, though:
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!
