In case you aren’t familiar with Dr. Who lore, this thing is a TARDIS. It looks like a British police box, but actually it’s a time machine spaceship (OBVIOUSLY) – though the one on the show, as far as I know, wasn’t made out of gingerbread. Because everyone knows that gingerbread can’t stand up to the rigors of space travel. Not even if it’s stale.
Luckily for fans of Dr. Who (and fans of TV memorabilia constructed from hard cookies), therru on livejournal.com posted full instructions for building a gingerbread TARDIS.
And luckily for fans of CraftFail, reader Kat decided to try to make one of her own!
You can read the hilarious step-by-step instructions for how to make Kat’s accidentally warped version on her blog – definitely worth the read, whether you plan to take off in your own TARDIS or not. As for me, I’ll just stay in my own time zone eating regular food, which I can barely even make look like food, let alone a prop from a TV show.
For more funny, take a plane, train, or TARDIS over to visit Robyn at Hollow Tree Ventures – or I guess you could just click the link, especially if your vehicle is held together loosely with white icing.
