This Darth Vader Gingerbread Man Is All We Want For Christmas

Who wouldn't want to take a bite out of the dark side?

The force is strong with this gingerbread man -- or at least the icing that holds it together is.

It took Oslo artist Caroline Eriksson three weeks to create this impressive 3-foot, 9-inch gingerbread Darth Vader.

The edible sculpture, which is now housed at the Ringen cinema in Oslo, Norway, is comprised of a metal skeleton, cloth and carefully crafted pieces of homemade gingerbread.

"I have to make the dough myself to make it stronger using more syrup and flour," Eriksson told the Huffington Post. "I use melted sugar as 'glue', which is effective, but I always manage to end up with a burn injury."

This isn't the first time Eriksson -- a 3-D artist who works on commercials and movies -- used gingerbread to create edible movie characters. In the past she's made an intricately detailed Smaug the Dragon from "Lord of the Rings" and the leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime, from "Transformers."

"My love for movies is probably the reason why all my creations are movie-related," Eriksson said.
