Unique Gingerbread Houses

Though I'm terrible at making and decorating gingerbread structures, I do love looking at them. We were in Tucson over the holiday break, and saw a wild west display at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort. 

If you like gingerbread houses, you'll want to check out these houses on Red Tricycle and the gothic Notre Dame reconstruction, via the Star Ledger.

Tracks of candy and pulverized cookies. Fondant and candy decorations.

The black and red in the background is the holiday Oreos, twisted apart. That's a lot of food coloring. In the foreground, a lot of gingerbread people.

Necco wafers and Christmas ribbon candy. And a doorway of peppermint.

Hershey's Hugs!

Cactus candy!

Various Hershey's bars.

  3. Those are amazing. That train is fantastic. We had our first attempt at a gingerbread house over Christmas (it's not really a big thing in Australia but since we were spending this Christmas in Canada we thought we'd give it a go) and it was a huge fail. The house kept falling in on itself and after an hour we gave up. We ended up decorating slabs of gingerbread instead.

  4. Those are awesome! Unfortunately, I'm incapable of constructing a decent gingerbread house - my kids make do with decorating gingermen cookies.

  5. I love gingerbread house displays! These are great.
