Gingerbread AT-AT Walker

Saturday, December 3rd, 2011

Two years ago, we built the Gingerbread Millennium Falcon. Last year, we built the Gingerbread Vader’s Tie Fighter. What should we build this year? More Star Wars vehicles? After a bit heavy thinking, we came up with the emperial AT-AT Walker. Luckily, the web is full of pictures and sketches, so we found plenty of inspiration.

After four hours, the result exceeded all expectations! Happy advent everybody!

Update: The Friendly Fredrik posted some more pictures of the building process.

Gingerbread Tie Fighter

Sunday, December 5th, 2010

Following up yesteryear’s gingerbread Millennium Falcon was a bit hard. The oldest of the kids, a couple of his friends and I, finally built Darth Vader’s Tie Fighter in gingerbread. Note the transparent window in the front, made from melted jellyman. While I was looking the other way, the rascals filled the hull with nonstops and sealed the back with icing. Happy Advent everybody!

The observant SW fan may discover that one of the bent solar panels is missing. It actually fell into the sugar pan, and was melted. We pretend it was shot off by Han Solo while baking a new one.
