Family Makes Amazing Gingerbread Replica of the Hotel from The Shining

 

For the holidays, reddit user eudicotyledon and her family created a gingerbread version of the haunted hotel from The Shining, complete with a rice krispie maze and interior rooms depicting famous scenes from the film.

She says the project took about two weeks on and off with a non-stop 72 hours at the very end to get it complete. The family doesn’t actually eat the gingerbread house and it usually lasts for about 3-4 months.

If you’re interested in seeing more, you can also find a ‘making of’ album on Imgur. What a fun and creative project (although she admitted it was challenging at times) to bring the whole family together for the holidays.
