Gingerbread House Ideas: BEST OF THE WEB

gingerbread house ideas best of the web

I like to search the net for gingerbread house ideas and inspiration for new designs and decorations. Here is a collection of some of the best that I have found.

Leading up to Christmas time our house is filled with the smell of baking gingerbread and the kids are excited about decorating gingerbread houses. Last year we even had a gingerbread decorating workshop at our house which was messy, but loads of fun.

The first ones have either instructions, recipes or templates.  The rest are pictures only but these are good for getting decorating ideas.  Hover over each one for more info and click to visit the webpage of their talented creators.

    My fiancee and I love making elaborate gingerbread houses every year- I just watched your “UP” gingerbread house video– i understand what you meant when you said this is a MANY piece pattern that is not for beginners- the pattern we made for the “George Lord Little House – Kennebunk Maine” that we made this year was comprised of about 50 pieces and had 34 windows… YIKES! 100 hours later…..

  3. I’ve done mug mini-gingerbread houses (inspired by Not Martha) for Christmas and it was a huge success. I used dark chocolate to bind the parts together and coated the roof only using sliced almonds and salted half peanuts. They looked quite rough but I liked it. I used Ann’s recipe above and it worked perfectly!

    • This is how it looks on the cup. 🙂

  4. BS low – raaiontlity high! Really good answer!

  5. I love your cooking show it is AMAZING

    • Admin HowToCookThat

      Thanks for the great feedback Idma!

  6. LOVE your work! Talk about ‘How to Cook that’ to everyone 🙂 just watched your wedding cake gingerbread house…amazing! Do you think a simple one would work if made out of cake instead of gingerbread? Held together with skewers?

    • Ann

      you could make a house shaped cake but it couldn’t be hollow, the cake would not be strong enough Rachele 🙂
