And, while we’d all love to create beautiful holiday desserts, not everyone has the skills to do so. The results? Often comical and disastrous.
So, here are IGNITE’s favourite examples of gingerbread houses that’ll leave you shaking your heads in disappointment.
1. The remake
An attempt was made, —Well, we hope practice makes perfect.
2. Last-minute artistry
Tell me you’re a procrastinator, without telling me you’re a procrastinator.
3. A self-aware artist
A well-deserved cry for help.
4. The one that leaves you scratching your head in confusion
If there were ever a horror movie about gingerbread houses, this would be the lead actor.
5. Literally understood the assignment
Would be a good idea to look up recipes before you delve into a dish. Just a thought.
6. Confidence is key?
People say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. But what on earth is this?
7. The risk manager
An F for the design; but an A+ for crisis management.
We hope this list gave you a laugh—or at least helped you learn what not to do next time you decorate this classic holiday treat.
