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.

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)

Wow, that is just epic!  The whole thing looks brilliant, but I really love the hedge maze, as I've never seen a gingerbread house with one of those before.  Redrum!  Redrum!

Congratulations on your win!  I don't know if Stephen King has any kind of presence on social media or not, but, if he does, you should send him your photos, as I bet he'd get a kick out of them.
