Up Gingerbread House

This clever house looks just like the one featured in Pixar’s hit movie Up. From the “grass” made out of toasted coconut to the rice paper curtains, this house makes every detail count.

White House

The White House gingerbread house is a tradition that’s been going on since the Carter administration. We think the house from 2011 was awesome—check out the First Dog Bo in the front yard, not to mention the cool candy forest surrounding the house.

Gingerbread Castle

We love the faux brick and festive wreath details on this extravagant castle by Dianne Rockwell. A super detailed three-headed dragon straight out of a fantasy story tops it all off.

Here’s a cute idea—combine a couple of holidays for an extra special gingerbread house. This creation is super sweet down to the last detail, from the heart-shaped roof tiles to the glittery snowman in the front yard.
