My best friend and I made a gingerbread structure every year. This year, we decided to make the Overlook Hotel from The Shining.



Structural elements are all gingerbread. Details done with icing, candy pearls, Necco Wafers (roof), chocolate rocks, Twizzlers. Maze and greenery are Rice Krispy treat. Snow is powdered sugar.

We found a giant blue gummy bear and decided he looked enough like Jack Nicholson to earn a coveted spot in the depths of the maze.

I'm not attached to your world, nothing heals, nothing grows... we used to love ourselves, we used to love one another.

life is no cabaret- we don't care what you say, we're inviting you anyway, you mf'ers, you'll sing someday!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

WOW! This is sooooo coooool! I hope you find a way to show your photos to the folks at the Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood in Oregon, where the exterior shots of the Overlook were made. (they don't have a maze, tho)
