These aren’t your mother’s gingerbread houses

December 9, 2009

Every year my family tries to make time to make gingerbread houses.  We don’t go too crazy on it, but we do our best.  They looked like this last year.

I used to think they were pretty good, but since then I’ve seen some of the ones that are entered into contests.  These make our little Gingerbread Row look like a shantytown.  The simple one room design is no longer the way it has to be.  The people that make the houses below must spend days putting them together.  Everything here is made completely from edible (but not necessarily delicious) material.

 

And working with gingerbread during Christmas is no longer limited to structures.  Here are a few creations that strayed somewhat from the traditional.

So after looking at all these, I figure I need to do a few things before we try to make our gingerbread houses this year.

1) Make plenty of time

2) Plan

3) Get a degree in architecture

    you forgot:

    4) move back into mom’s basement

    5) abandon all hope of ever being cool again

    6) buy a one-way ticket to La-La Land.
