The Sweet Candy World of Gingerbread Architecture (Third Edition)

evergreen estate gingerbread house.jpg

Of course, when you think about gingerbread houses, two things come to mind: Christmas and Hansel and Gretel Though in the latter, the gingerbread house assumed the role of a windowless van offering free candy that you should stay the hell away from. Yet, Hansel and Gretel don’t listen and a witch almost cooks them into a pot to eat. Anyway, that’s a rather unpleasant subject. Still, despite that grisly fairy tale, gingerbread houses have been a longtime Christmas tradition. Though the image above mainly consists of a traditional design, you can find so many great gingerbread creations with the help of a Google search. During the holiday season, you’ll find many gingerbread house competitions throughout the country and the world. Though you’ll also find plenty of gingerbread renditions of landmarks and fictional settings. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of gingerbread creations. Enjoy.

  1. Perhaps you might want to stop at this cottage.

Now that I put up some of my crazy Christmas posts, I return to some of the nice decorations. Though plenty might opt for a simple Christmas tree, a wreath, lights, and other trimmings, some may go over the top. Among these, you might find a Christmas village within one’s home with putz or porcelain houses that may light up a winter wonderland when the lights are out. You might find it on a tree like display like this one. You may find it on a large table. Or you might see it under the tree with a toy train track. Since it’s the Christmas season, you’ll find plenty of companies selling these cute Christmas houses so people can build their own yuletide towns. Yet, some may prefer the old-fashioned putz houses and make their own. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasury of cute Christmas village houses. Enjoy.

Deck the Halls with These Christmas Craft Projects (Fourth Edition)

christmas-tree-near-fireplace_0

When it comes to decorating for Christmas, you can bet it includes such trappings like an ornamental tree, stockings, poinsettias, wreaths, and more. Though many homes might not include a cozy fireside. Since such yuletide décor can be a serious fire hazard. Nonetheless, walk into any store and you’ll find a wide assortment of Christmas decorations for your home. But there are plenty of people who’d rather make their own holiday trappings. Of course, craft stores are happy to oblige. Not to mention, children also make some of their Christmas decorations in their art class. Still, unlike the treats I just showed you that must be eaten before an expiration date, Christmas craft projects can be used year after year. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasury of Christmas crafts for the season. Enjoy.

The Sweet Candy World of Gingerbread Architecture (Second Edition)

gingerbread house

Now we go to the gingerbread houses. For many families decorating their very own gingerbread house with candy is a tradition. Often children build these with their parents’ help, usually decorating them with frosting and candy. Though the tradition is alive in some places in Europe than others. In Sweden, people make their gingerbread houses on Saint Lucy’s Day. And since 1991, the people of Bergen, Norway have built a gingerbread city called Pepperkakebyen which is the largest of such in the world. Washington D.C. also builds its own “Gingertown” every year as well. So far the world’s biggest gingerbread house was built in 2013 in Bryan, Texas by a group to raise funds for a hospital trauma center. The house was 2,520-square feet and comprised of 2,925 pounds of brown sugar, 1,800 pounds of butter, 7,200 eggs and 7,200 pounds of general purpose flour. The world’s largest gingerbread village was created by an executive sous-chef at the New York Marriott Marquis hotel which comprised of 135 residential and 22 commercial buildings. It even included trains and cable cars made of gingerbread. Nevertheless, a gingerbread house doesn’t have to be an actual house, which can range from a small cabin to a castle. Sometimes you might see gingerbread churches, stadiums, museums, and other structures. Anyway, for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of delectable gingerbread houses.

  1. Come over to this gingerbread amusement park.

Includes a carousel and a ferris wheel. All decorated in frosting and candy goodness.

2. Perhaps you may be charmed by this stone church.

Sure it may not have the lavish candy decorations. But you have to love the ornate windows.

3. A gingerbread house should be decked with boughs of holly.

Has a roof covered with snow. Seems like a rather old-fashioned place with an old timey car.

4. Sometimes it’s best to start simple.

Has candy covered on the roof with frosting on the edges. Includes an iced porch with a candy cane column.

5. This castle is the stuff of fairy tales.

This one has several towers with rich detail. Includes gingerbread trees as well.

6. Christmas is always a festive time of year at this Victorian house.

This beautiful house has it all festive for Christmas. Got to admire the detail on this.

7. A gingerbread castle always delights those in the happiest place on earth.

This is a depiction of Cinderella’s castle in all its Christmas glory. And yes, the wreath is in the shape of Mickey Mouse.

8. A charming gingerbread house should include a space for plants.

This one has a greenhouse made of pretzel sticks and jello. Still, makes a rather quaint home with the Christmas decorations.

9. You’d almost think this was a village inspired by Mother Goose.

And in a way it is, since it includes most of the characters from Mother Goose rhymes. But it only comprises of 3 buildings.

10. How about a small, stone Christmas cottage?

You can easily find a house like this in your neighborhood. Still, you have to love the Christmas decorations on this and the greenery.

11. Even a lavish hotel can certainly deck the halls.

I’m not sure what this building’s called. But it’s surely decorated for the holidays nonetheless.

12. Of course, you can’t have Christmas without including a nativity scene.

Since I didn’t include one in my gingerbread post last year. And yes, this one has an inn in the background.

13. Perhaps a gingerbread pagoda will suit your taste.

And we have this one shining like a pillar on its foundation. Like the white roof. So pretty.

14. A gingerbread church should be in its most festive.

This one is certainly fit for Candyland. Got to love the beautiful pillars of candy.

15. Those in warmer weather might want to consider this gingerbread beach cabin.

Includes a surfboard and lifesaver. Not sure whether that’s brown sugar or sand. But to each his own.

16. Care to take a look inside Santa’s bakery?

Inside you have Santa with the tree as well as Mrs. Claus and her helpers. Though the sleigh and reindeer are outside.

17. I guess you call this a Santaland fun fair.

Yes, it’s another gingerbread amusement park. But this one even has a fun slide and fun house.

18. A fancy gingerbread house needs to include every trimming.

This one has candy cane columns and all kinds of sweet stuff. But the design is so charming.

19. Care for a carriage ride.

Yes, this is a gingerbread horse drawn carriage. Like they had in the olden days. Though a ride in this thing wouldn’t have been pleasant back then.

20. Hope you can hold your candy canes for this wild ride.

I guess this is a local attraction. Nevertheless, you have to admire the structure since a gingerbread roller coaster seems hard to pull off.

21. Hop aboard on the Popcorn Express.

Last year’s gingerbread post I had a gingerbread train station. This year it’s a gingerbread train with popcorn smoke.

22. For a Christmas without snow, a gingerbread sandcastle may suit your fancy.

Caption reads: “Kristen Coniaris with her giant gingerbread house cookie sandcastle decorated with royal icing, ground cookies, candy for Viacom’s holiday beach party.”

23. And I see bakeries are getting in the act of gingerbread competition.

Yes, bakeries do compete in gingerbread contests. Still, I really love the candy roof on this one.

24. A gingerbread house like this is all too sweet to not love.

Includes heart candy decor on the roof and candy cane columns. And yes, the previous one is in a similar style.

25. You might be fond of this gingerbread house underwater.

Yes, this is an undersea gingerbread house. Like how the roof is covered in clams.

26. Even a gingerbread log cabin can look spectacular.

This one is covered in pretzel sticks instead of gingerbread. But it’s included in this post since it abides by the form.

27. If you’re sick, how about go to a gingerbread hospital?

Well, this is kind of cute. Though the horse drawn ambulance kind of keeps me from getting any treatment there. Because I could tell their doctors must practice some kind of Civil War era medicine.

28. Any Christmas village deserves its own Christmas cathedral.

Okay, it’s more a castle. But it certainly has lofty towers and walls. Love it.

29. Those who love the 1960s might want to see this hippie gingerbread house.

Has a bright colored house with surfboards and a VW bus. Groovy, isn’t it?

30. Perhaps you might prefer a brick home with fancy lattice.

Yes, it’s another fancy home on this post. And though this photo doesn’t show the porch, it has a dog house in the back yard.

31. If you love Pixar, you might adore this Up gingerbread house.

The balloons are made of jelly beans. But you have to like how it’s floating over the base.

32. How about an island gingerbread hut for starters?

This one has shredded wheat on its roof for straw. Also, uses fruit roll ups for a hammock and towels.

33. You can always let it snow on this white gingerbread house.

Comes with green candy cane columns and wreaths on the windows. So lovely and cozy.

34. You’d almost mistake this place for an old timey homestead.

Yes, it looks quite quaint for a rustic home. Yet, you have to admire the green shutters on the windows.

35. Now this is what you call a perfect Christmas house.

This one seems like a place Santa himself could live in at the North Pole. Got to adore the snow covered red roof.

36. Sometimes it’s all in the tiny details when it comes to gingerbread.

Comes with a green roofed sun room. And yes, it’s all decked for the holiday season.

Sure it’s on the small side for fairy tale establishments. But it’s quite picturesque. Oh, the wonders you can do with frosting.

38. Perhaps you might want gingerbread abode in a Tudor style.

Certainly seems like the kind of home you’d see in a fairy tale village. Doesn’t seem to have a lot of Christmas decorations though.

39. Bag End looks ready for the holiday season.

It took me awhile to realize this by the way. At first, I thought the guy with the shaggy beard was Hagrid. Now I realize it’s Thorin.

40. You’d be in a winter wonderland with this white castle.

At least they don’t serve burgers here. Still, it’s quite a majestic sight.

41. Enjoy your island stay in one of these gingerbread huts.

This one consists of 3 huts on a porch. And they’re all in front of a beach.

42. Those who enjoy Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas will enjoy this gingerbread house.

This is Cindy Lou Who’s house where the Grinch first stopped. You can see the lights from the sack.

43. A green gingerbread house can always make things more festive.

Has a lovely façade with wonderful Christmas decorations. I suppose the Christmas tree is an ice cream cone with frosting.

44. Seems like we got ourselves a colorful candy factory.

Seems like the kind of factory you’d expect if you had a child of Willy Wonka and Lisa Frank enter in the confection business. Though let’s not dwell on the working conditions here.

45. A red brick church can always bring in the holiday spirit.

Caption: “Boyajian made a replica of the St. Aloysius Church near Dieterich out of gingerbread. He and a friend even measured the outside of the church so he could make it to scale. He spent more than 200 hours on the project.”

46. Perhaps this gingerbread caravel will enchant you.

Yes, it certainly looks very majestic. However, real wooden ships were hellholes with cramped spaces, spoiled food, shitting, and disease.

47. A gingerbread carousel should always delight.

You may not be able to go on the carousel during the Christmas season. But this is nonetheless charming.

48. Santa Toy Works seems incredibly busy these days.

Love the bright colors they used on this one. Hope those presents get made in no time.

49. Here we have Santa at some beach house down on the shore.

Well, someone must be kicking back near the waves. Hope Santa doesn’t get too hot.

50. Seems like someone’s waiting for something.

This one almost looks like a miniature of a McMansion. The stonework is incredible.

51. For a more modern flair, how about Fallingwater?

To be fair, Fallingwater is basically overrated as far as architecture’s concerned. If you want to visit Fayette County, you’re better off spending your afternoon at Fort Necessity.

52. I’m sure no gingerbread man wants to be put away in this place.

Well, one for a western town, anyway. Still, it lights up from the inside.

53. Someone’s Model T needs a few repairs.

Never thought I’d see a gingerbread mechanic’s shop before. And an old timey one at that.

55. You see this small ship departing from this gingerbread harbor.

Almost resembles a postcard. Got to love the lighthouse here.

This is quite interesting. Not necessarily Hogwarts. But quite stunning just the same.

57. Boston Red Sox fans will love this gingerbread Fenway Park.

Though I’m sure there’s a gingerbread of Yankee stadium for New York Yankee fans seething at this. Still, I’m not sure why it’s green.

58. This gingerbread igloo is great in the snow and ice.

This one has little gingerbread bricks with reindeer and an Inuit on a sled. So adorable.

59. Nothing can match this gingerbread cuckoo clock.

This one almost resembles the real thing. Though it’s not nearly as annoying.

60. Seems like Gondor has called for aid.

Yes, that’s a gingerbread reenactment of the Battle of Gondor from Return of the King. And those are gummies in the epic fight.

61. You’d almost think this was a high class tower house.

In a way it is. Kind of reminds me of something you’d see from A Series of Unfortunate Events. Includes a nice patio though.

62. Seems like this house got some snow.

This almost looks like a model. Love the rich detail on this Victorian. So lovely.

63. “I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore, Toto.”

Got to like the tornado in this one. How this pulled it off, I’ll never know.

64. A quaint cottage should always come with a thatched roof.

Almost seems like a quality fairy tale home. So lovey with the stone foundation and wooden beams.

65. Now this is the ultimate gingerbread winter palace.

And yes, it’s certainly huge beyond belief. But you have to love the towers.

66. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at this gingerbread store.

Contains display windows at the first floor. A great place to shop during the holidays.

67. Have a wonderful Christmas thanks to this tree place.

Here we have Santa with a nice tree decorated already. And there are still some trees outside.

68. Santa always makes sure to visit the treehouse.

Though he appears to want to be somewhere else. Not that I blame him either.

69. So Santa lives in a castle at the North Pole.

Nevertheless, it’s a pastel house with candy cane edging all over. Bet it smells like peppermints.

70. Then again, Santa’s house could easily be a green and red Tudor.

Though I think it would better with dark green beams. Includes a stone foundation with a staircase.

71. A red carousel can always evoke the Christmas season.

This one includes a generous amount of red and green frosting with flowers. And I bet the top includes lace decoration.

72. A simple storefront always seems quaint during the holidays.

Well, doesn’t seem to use a lot of decorations. Though you can see Santa on a roof. So lovely.

73. Here you’ll find a white stone house covered in ivy.

Yes, it seems like nature has dominated this place. Though you can see a couple of Christmas wreaths.

74. For the small and mobile bunch, perhaps a gingerbread camper might do.

Has a Christmas tree tied to the top. Thought it was supposed to go inside.

75. Hop aboard onto Rudolph Air.

It’s a Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer airplane. Not necessarily in line with Christmas lore, but I don’t mind.

76. You might find a bird singing in this gingerbread bird cage.

I see it’s supposed to emanate some of the 12 Days of Christmas. Though I don’t think that song actually makes any sense.

77. You’d almost think things got crazy at this place.

This one kind of reminds you of what you’d see in Whoville. Because you wouldn’t see a house like this in real life.

78. Somehow an elf can have a bed and breakfast at the North Pole.

Though it has fine Christmas decorations as well as red and green trimmings. So lovely.

79. Hope you can spend some time alongside this gingerbread mill.

Comes with a waterwheel. But still has a Christmas wreath for the season.

80. Perhaps you want to spend Christmas in this cozy red house.

This is quite lovely. Has a yellow roof and Christmas decorations all around. So pretty.

81. You’d almost swear they were celebrating near a Chinese shrine.

Okay, it might be for Chinese New Year which is in February. But it’s nonetheless stunning just the same.

82. This gingerbread structure will certainly take you back in time.

Though some people in the past might not get why Dr. Who has Christmas decorations on his Tardis. This is especially if they’re from ancient times.

83. For Native Americans on the Plains, you might want to consider a gingerbread teepee.

This one has an Indian near a campfire. And yes, the teepee’s covered in candy like the houses.

84. Seems there’s a lot of flotsam and jetsam floating near this dock.

This one has a yacht club building. But yes, the water doesn’t look great here.
