The World’s Top 10 Best Gingerbread Houses

The World’s Top 10 Best Gingerbread Houses

Gingerbread Doctor Who K9

This is not so much nursery rhyme inspired more kids cooking time inspired, because it just doesn’t matter where you live or what sort of up bringing you have had you have definitely done one of these two things. 1) Made a Gingerbread house or maybe 2) seen a picture of one. In my opinion the humble Gingerbread house is like an old water-colour painting, even the bad ones look great and they are all open to artistic interpretation meaning they don’t have to look like a house at all! So with that in mind lets walk through the galley they call the internet and try to discover just what is…

Grumpy Cat Inspired Gingerbread House

Inspired by everyone’s favourite ”Grumpy Cat” is this rather cool looking Ginger bread house that is so amazing even Grump cat himself might crack a smile at it because I know I did!

Gingerbread Dunking Snack

9 – The house that dunk built (source)

A Gingerbread house that you can not only dunk in your tea or coffee but that is also made specially so it can hang on the side of the cup is always going to be amazing and it really doesn’t disappoint, practical and tasty!

Gingerbread Doctor Who K9

8 – The Doctors Dog (source)

Not so much gingerbread house more dog house, but that doesn’t take anything away from this rather awesome Gingerbread K-9 I just looks amazing and brings a nice big smile to my face every time I look at it.

Gingerbread Shoe House

7 – The old woman’s Gingerbread house (source)

This is a real spin on the gingerbread house from the story books as it also covers the “old woman” nursery rhyme as well, it looks amazing, tasty and is well worth a place on this list.

Gingerbread Hobbit House

6 – The Lord of the Ginger Rings! (…why did that sound rude?!?) (source)

Bilbo Baggins would definitely give this a thumbs up as it is a Gingerbread Hobbit house! Even the little village sign is made from Gingerbread. The whole thing is amazing if a little impossible for us mere mortals to think about copying.

Gingerbread Portal Cube

5 – The prefect companion. (source)

What I really liked about this Gingerbread Portal 2 cube is that any of us could make it! If you think about it, it is only 5 (if you don’t make the bottom) sides and that means only 5 flat pieces of Gingerbread to make and a little bit of icing! Simplez!

Gingerbread Serenity!

4 – Made with perfect serenity (source)

For those that don’t know, this ship “Serenity” is a fictional spaceship that appears in Joss Whedon’s Firefly television series. And if you Google an image of it you will discover that this is indeed a very good replication of it and it is all 100% edible. Simply Stunning.

The World’s best Gingerbread House?!?

3 – The Best Ever?!? (source)

I just had to include this one because not only is it on of the few actual houses made from Gingerbread but it is also incredible and it is as simple as that. It looks stunning and is in fact rather basic in design meaning most of us could have a go at making it. Well, try anyway!

Gingerbread TARDIS

2 – Who made this! (source)

Is that really a Gingerbread TARDIS? Oh yes! You can stop rubbing your eyes because it’s real and would go great at any little nerds birthday party. (even I would go nuts for it!)

Imperial AT-AT of gingerbread house

1 – Gingerbread Wars?!? (source)

Some people make large gingerbread houses, some make small ones and other go way beyond anything you would have ever seen before, and that is where this jaw dropping Gingerbread AT-AT comes into it! It not only looks EPIC it most probably tastes it as well!

************BONUS*************

I wanted to bring you some great images of a gingerbread house done by the very talented daughter of  Ann Marie. She is graduating this month with a culinary degree and she won 1st place at her school for this! That is what I call a win and boy is it worth seeing…
