Brick Gingerbread House from My Insanity
It is that time again. Time to start collecting ideas for gingerbread houses. Here are some of my favorite ideas so far this year. I love the brick gingerbread house from My Insanity and the pretzel log cabins gingerbread house from Gingerbread House Heaven.
Instead of using a ton of frosting or coconut to make snow, I am pretty sure that this snow covered gingerbread house used confectioners sugar.
The roof is always one of the most important things, and I love this chevron patterned gingerbread house roof I saw over at Elegance Redefined. It was even way ahead of the trend because it was from 2008.
I love the gingerbread porch that Vegan dad add to his house.
And I think I need a candy cane lamppost (and whatever that really cool roof is) from the house in this image by Steve Cohen:
And I think my overall favorite that I found this year over at Artisan Cake Company is this UP gingerbread house.
If you are making your gingerbread house from scratch, Fave Crafts has a great tutorial on how to bake and construct a custom gingerbread house.
And you can check out the gingerbread house inspiration from last year too.
