There are lots of issues to like in regards to the vacation season, and normally the primary objects on that checklist that come to thoughts are enjoyable decorations and scrumptious meals that’s horrible for you. My private favourite is while you carry them each collectively. That’s proper — I’m talkin’ gingerbread homes. There are few actions that generate the identical pure, unadulterated pleasure as making an attempt to carry partitions of gingerbread which are extra like concrete and fewer like cookies, utilizing actually the worst icing on earth which you squeezed from a bag that you simply lower wayyyyyy too large a gap in. Making gingerbread homes is one thing that everybody begins out extraordinarily unhealthy at and no person actually ever will get higher, which is one thing all of us have in widespread, and that’s type of stunning when you consider it. It’s good to all suck collectively.
Properly, not all of us battle with gingerbread building. Some persons are really insanely good at it apparently. Folks like Caroline Eriksson, a cake designer from Norway who has extra expertise in her pinky nail than I do in each my icing and crumb coated fingers.
Utilizing home-baked customized items of gingerbread, Caroline created the magnum opus of vacation meals decor…
She made a goddamn xenomorph.
What the hell
After creating the inside skeleton, Caroline glued the gingerbread items she baked onto it utilizing melted sugar — and my takeaway from that is the icing that comes with gingerbread homes does, in truth, completely suck.

I imply, there’s actually nothing else to say in addition to, “Holy SHIT,” but when I had one criticism it could be that it undoubtedly wants some extra Jujubes.
