I was inspired by some gingerbread AT-AT walkers I saw online and decided to try my hand at creating one. Although you can create your own gingerbread pieces, I did it the easy way and bought these pre-made ones from IKEA. I used about 3-4 packs of these, which was plenty. The great thing is that these pieces are large enough so you can cut them into the shapes you want.

For the icing, I used about 4 cups powdered sugar and a 1/4 cup of milk. You can add more/less powdered sugar depending on how thick you want the icing to be.

Other optional ingredients:
-Mini M&Ms (Christmas colors)
-2 rolls of Life Savers (mixed colors)
-Black licorice

Step 1: AT-AT Body

First I built the body by slicing pieces of the pre-made gingerbread cookie. I put 3 pieces together to construct the sides and then decorated those with mini M&Ms. Once dry, I put them on a base and added a "roof". 

Step 2: AT-AT head

Use the same technique as step 1 to create the head. For the front of the AT-AT head, I made a "wreath" using a green Life Saver and some red mini M&Ms. For the guns, I used some trimmed down black licorice. 

I attached the head piece to the body with a roll of Life Savers.
That's awesome!
