The Finished Products

We’d love to read your comments: which building is your favorite? There will be several shots of each.

Victorian Cottage.

Notice this house even has lighting. Yes, it's true. Real lights shining through noodle windows.

Those Rice Chex roof tiles are nice.

The fence is amazing.

Calvary Church.

This was no small church. Notice even the cross at the top.

The stained glass windows are very creative, and the icicles? Wow.

Gingerville Zoo. Quite a creative one. Notice the water is made of blue M&Ms.

Animals crackers make great animals. Nice cage too.

Gingerville Grocery Store. The gingerbread walls are sided with pretzel "logs." Notice the porch supports?

Nice red-hot Christmas lights.

What is a store without fruit?

Back door is for deliveries.

Mayor's House. Notice the snow blower out front?!

A bush made out of chow mein noodles.

I guess the mayor must have people over for s'mores and a bonfire.

JH Tower. Notice the Christmas lights going up it, as well as the flashing light on the top?

Lights here too.

  1. They are all fantastic. I especially like the store (the log cabin look is very attractive and I tend to be partial to cabins). I did like the stained glass windows of the Calvary Church as well. I like the ice cream cone on the Mayor’s house. Even though there is something I like about each of them I vote the Grocery Store. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Very creative. If I had to choose, it would be the first one–the cottage–BUT they are ALL very, very nice.

  3. My favorites are the Victorian cottage and the grocery store.
    We are going to make a gingerbread farm for our farm Christmas party so you gave me great ideas.

    Very creative!
    Merry Christmas!


  4. I’m going to vote for the tower. Height is challenging with gingerbread!!!

    (but my emotional favorite was the store.)

  5. I think the zoo is cute. That one gets my vote. Good job.

    The JH tower is very impressive too. Those angled sides would have been tough to do.


  6. Wonderful ideas! Thank you for sharing! =)

    Our vote is for the Grocery Store.

    Good job on all of them!

    Merry Christmas and God bless you all. =)

  7. I love the Victorian cottage. You all did a great job on them. It sure makes me want to be a part of your family.

  8. Very tough choice… Their all so cute! Whoever made them did a WONDERFUL job!!! My pick is the grocery store. 🙂

  9. You all did a pretty nice job, so it’s hard to pick a favorite. I’m going to have to go with the Victorian cottage, though. I also like the zoo because the animal crackers in the cage made me laugh. 🙂

  10. I love making gingerbread houses from scratch!

    I vote for the grocery store. Love the back delivery door! very creative.
    I love the snow blower outside the mayor’s house.

    PS I saw the comment about stained glass windows and thought I’d mention another way that I’ve used. It works very well, is easy and looks fantastic. Literally paint the windows on with frosting! Don’t cut the dough out of the windows when baking, then draw the outline of your window on the baked gingerbread with a marker. Take a small paint brush and put a little bit of water on it. Use the brush to paint the colored royal frosting onto the gingerbread- wa-la The frosting dries smooth and looks super-not sunken in as can happen of the gingerbread has been cut out.

  11. We loved them all, but the grocery store was our favorite. Second was the cottage. It looks like you all put a lot of thought into your designs and had a lot of fun putting them all together. Happy New Year’s!
