The 10 Most Impressive TV & Movie Inspired Gingerbread Houses

TV & Movie Inspired Gingerbread Houses

As is too often the case, I think I’ve written something unique for my readers and Buzzfeed beats me to the punch by 12 hours. They happened to have posted the exact same subject as this, titled “13 Epic Gingerbread Houses Inspired By Your Favorite Movie And TV Shows.” While we have several of the same shows represented, we only share one gingerbread creation. And these are more impressive. Look for yourself.

The Bates Motel made entirely of gingerbread by Brad Cerenzia was something I just stumbled upon when browsing flickr. So glad I did. It’s scary good. See more images here

Doctor Who:
Doctor Who Gingerbread Tardis
There are tons of Tardis Gingerbread sculptures out there.  Despite the fact that this one isn’t technically ‘Tardis Blue’. they did such a nice job with the icicles and Christmas decor that I chose to include it. Unfortunately I can’t find the talented baker who created it.  PS. Domestic Sluttery (how great is that name?) has a tutorial on how to make your own Tardis out of gingerbread here

The Lord Of The Rings:

It’s the time of year when Gingerbread House Competitions abound and impressively iced Christmas cookies flood the internet. If you want to see some more eye-popping and mouth-watering baked goods, go browse Pinterest for Christmas Cookies or Gingerbread Houses. The number of talented bakers, both professional and amateur, are astounding and I wish I could feature all of them.
