One of the best things about the holidays is, hands down, the food. Specifically, the sweets. Even more specifically, decorating the sweets. Basically, this is the one time of year when you can play with your food and, not only do you not have to be embarrassed, you can post your creations on Instagram and get all the likes. Gingerbread houses and gingerbread men are great, but these culinary geeks took it to another level. Prepare to nerd out.
This is the season of Star Wars, so it’s no surprise that Star Wars themed gingerbread creations are the best. This AT-AT Walker has crashed on Hoth (or in some cotton) and it’s perfect.
Obsessed with these Star Wars gingerbreads.
R2-D2 is just as sweet in person as he is in the movies.
Doctor Who is also popular inspiration for geeky gingerbread creators.
There are a lot of gingerbread TARDISes.
Seriously, so many TARDISes.
ALL of the TARDISes.
The winner of this Hunger Games will be anyone who gets to help devour this mockingjay gingerbread.
Of course Potterheads are expert gingerbread crafters. Check out this epic Hogwarts.
And this scene with Harry, Ron, Dobby and the Ford Anglia.
Hogwarts AND The Shire from Lord of the Rings? Over a-geekment.
Pokeball gingerbread, I choose you! Oh, and a Bilbo gingerbread hobbit, just for good measure.
These Sailor Moon gingerbread girls are perfection.
