Sweets: Gingerbread Overlook Hotel

Source: Imgur via Reddit

This fantastic gingerbread recreation of the Overlook Hotel from Stephen King's The Shining is made entirely of edible ingredients. The entire diorama is made of gingerbread, icing, fondant, edible paper, Rice Krispies Treats, and different kinds of candy. The Overlook Hotel building measures nearly four feet long. Its exterior walls are covered with fondant and icing, the roof is covered with quinoa and powdered sugar, and the windows are made of melted Jolly Ranchers candies.   Even the blood is candy.

The gingerbread hotel  includes five interior rooms featuring scenes from the movie, complete with little edible Jack, Wendy, Danny and evil twins.  The whole thing took two weeks to build from still frames taken from the movie.

This sweet diorama was a family holiday project, part of an annual Christmas tradition in which they make ornate gingerbread structures.

There are five interior rooms that depict scenes from the movie!

The first room is the hallway with the creepy little girls.

And of course no gingerbread Overlook Hotel would be complete without the elevator spilling blood...
