Let's face it: making gingerbread houses is more fun than eating gingerbread houses because the stuff tastes like papier-mache made from brown grocery bags. But all that is beside the point when your gingerbread masterpiece is an Imperial AT-AT walker from The Empire Strikes Back.
Rachel Klemek of Irvine's Blackmarket Bakery entered this gingerbread creation for the Discovery Science Center's 6th Annual Gingerbread Competition. Technically, it's not a gingerbread house, but Klemek's creation better win because it's awesome!
Think you can out-do Klemek's creation? Entries for this season's gingerbread competition are accepted until this Monday, December 5. Good luck!
