Lovin' Spoonfuls: A few of our Favorite Gingerbread Houses 2011

As small as a typewriter, as big as a house... really, a house!
Fit for a president or wrought for a cause,
Here's a photo & video round-up of a few my favorite gingerbread homes

Big: The Incredible Edible Gingerbread House at the Brunswick Centre, in Bloomsbury London created to raise money for the Great Ormond Street hospital.


A typewriter! Baked Ideas made this gorgeous super colorful and nostalgic, completely edible gingerbread typewriter (like a house for stories) to benefit City Harvest. It's displayed at NYC's Parker Meridien Hotel. The Gingerbread Wonderland is located in the 56th Street atrium of the lobby:
December 1st – January 6th created by local restaurants & bakeries:


Gingerbread the White House: weighing in at over 150 pounds of gingerbread dough and 250 lbs of white chocolate and an amazing attention to detail:




How to: I came across this wonderful Gingerbread Brownstone through a tweet from my friend Elisa Strauss. Its from Kitchen Table Scraps.com
Check out their Build a Gingerbread Brownstone post for really great photos and details on how to build your own brownstone & Gingerbread house basics:


Behind the scenes: with our friends at Cake Alchemy building their Penguin House. Here's my question: How did they get the amazing and beautiful pulled sugar to hold up? Lauri?

On display at the New York Botanical Gardens through January 16, 2012




On Location: our Dog Gingerbread house for the NYBG.

Lastly, a perennial favorite: Baked Ideas tiny houses, too small for even a mouse:
