We rounded up some of the funniest gingerbread house fails shared on social media over the past few years.
Gingerbread houses, those sticky, intricate confections, have become a DIY Christmas favorite over the years. Originating in Germany around the 16th century, these "sweet" houses were first decorated with tin foil and gold leaf. They experienced a rise in popularity thanks to the Brothers Grimm's "Hansel and Gretel" fairytale.
That tale is, as we all know, grim — but there's nothing quite as grim as a gingerbread house gone awry.
In an ideal world, gingerbread would be as hard as bricks and icing would be made of super glue, the combined powers of which would yield a standing, four-walled structure. But as these 20 Instagram photos will show you, that couldn't be further from the case.
From melted icing to cracked gingerbread walls, we rounded up some of the most wince-inducing gingerbread house fails shared on social media over the past few years.
