Does your family make gingerbread houses for the holidays? I love them but I’m not so great at making them from scratch. I’m a big fan of gingerbread house kits and love that you can make everything from traditional gingerbread houses and villages to gingerbread lighthouses and trains. In the “what will they think of next” category, you can even make a gingerbread volcano (little boys would LOVE this one!).
I’m a traditionalist so I like a good old fashioned gingerbread house but the fancier, the better. Some of these are so over the top that you’d have to be an architect to make one…but it sure would be fun to try! Check out these awesome gingerbread houses and see if you can pick a favorite!

Hey! I just found my way here via Pinterest. Thanks for the accolades. Could you please fix the attribution on the first house in your list, the colorful candy factory? The link is correct but the artist is Lynne Schuyler. I featured her work on my site. For reference, the link is here: https://www.wickedgoodies.net/2013/12/gingerbread-candy-factory-by-lynne-schuyler/
