Why make a boring gingerbread house when you can attack Hoth and hunger with this delightful dessert worthy of the Empire itself?

Chef Aaron Lawrence from the Catalano Restaurant & Cicchetti Bar at Victoria, British Columbia’s Magnolia Hotel & Spa created the gingerbread AT-AT for the fifth annual Canada’s National Gingerbread Showcase. Professional and amateur chefs alike are invited to the showcase to build and decorate their own one-of-a-kind gingerbread creations in support of Habitat for Humanity Victoria.

Since the theme this year is transportation, Chef Lawrence decided to pay homage to both “Star Wars” and Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer.
