With some dough and candy left over from another gingerbread project, I thought I’d try my hand at making a 1/4-scale gingerbread Glowforge.

If you open the lid, you can see the laser tube, the honeycomb grid, the laser head and gantry, and a little circuit board. Oh, also the work-in-progress that just finished being cut.

Of course, it’s 100% edible, as all such creations should be. And all I could think while I was making it was how much easier it might be if I could laser-cut the pieces. :slight_smile:

Weekly Highlights for the week of 18-DEC-16

Oh no! Burning Bob the gingerbread man :grinning:


Big :squeee: all around. Thats looks mmmm yummy good. Love the candy cane for the tube and the smartie candy for the big button.:smile:


The candy cane for the laser tube is inspired!




Wait wait wait, your comment infers that the real GF isn’t edible . I thought CO2 laser engravers were delicacies. I may of been mislead by the marketing videos.


Oooooh just clicked on the link for your other gingerbread project…love love love it!! Brought back memories of days of past…lol
Future and past tech :smile::smile:


Whoa! Circuit board? Laser head and laser cut gingerbread boy? Lid? I may be biased, but I think you outdid yourself. I like the GF even more than the retro Apple 2 computer. Go :glowforge: - Rich


Oh, wow! That is wonderful! I just love all your attention to detail! :christmas_tree:


The wafer as the crumb tray is so fitting!!! Well done. :smiley:


Holy crap man! That is pretty spectacular, you definitely get the GF uber fan of the month award for that one :yum:




Looks delicious!


I love this. LOVE THIS.


Holy smokes! It’s quite a work of art! The solid sugar glass lid is a great touch.


No words! :heart_eyes:

(And yeah, this is going into the Weekly Highlights reel…)


I was especially amused by the use of wafer cookie for the gantry bed and candy cane for the CO2 tube. :laughing: Excellent abuse of confectionary textures! :smiley:


Wowsa. This is very, very awesome.


So very delightful! I want to go make complicated cookies now!


That’s freaking awesome! Haha well done!
