Extreme Gingerbread House Fails Are Emerging Online--And We Can Relate

By Aimee Lutkin

A Christmas tradition that looks amazing on Pinterest doesn't always translate in the hands of less professionally festive folk. Every year, people try to make beautiful gingerbread houses, and every year, many of them fail miserably. 

But their failure is a win for us.

"I am very sad to announce my gingerbread house has suffered catastrophic damage. RIP gingerbread house. December 2nd 9:08 pm-December 3rd 7:56 pm. Cause of collapse: I pushed too hard on a gum drop and it broke," wrote one sad person who presumably put a lot of time and effort into their holiday dessert.

"Pushing too hard on a gum drop" is the best way to suffer catastrophic collapse, in my opinion.
