Have you ever wanted to shrink yourself down an live in a gingerbread house? If you haven't it is probably because you never saw these insane creations. Creating your own gingerbread house can be a challenge, but even with the best tips on the web these gingerbread houses are not for the amateur decorator. Get ready to be impressed and take a look at these unbelievable creations:


1) The White House and Capitol Building

Gingerbread White House and Capitol

These insane gingerbread monuments were created by the Windows Catering Company for an event in Washington D.C. Their level of detail and creative use of ingredients is awe-inspiring and is sure to make you feel patriotic. Amateur bakers: this one is not for you. 


2) The Burrow

The Gingerbread Burrow

Did you ever think you'd see the house of Harry Potter's best friend made from gingerbread? This amateur baker spent 40 hours designing, baking and constructing this magical abode. Our favorite detail is the use of Chex on the roof for a thatched look! 


3) Falling Gingerbread

Falling Water at Christmas Gingerbread house

Have you ever seen a gingerbread house inspired by modern architecture? This recreation of Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water is made from 164 pieces of gingerbread and 40 sleeves of Giant Smarties to create the "stacked stone" facade. If you're interested in making it yourself, the original creators have made the house plans available on their blog


4) Fairytale Swiss Chalet

Swiss Chalet Gingerbread House

This multi-level gingerbread house caused quite a stir at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens Gingerbread House Contest. This top-heavy chalet has stained-glass windows and incredible details--check out the stacks of root beer barrels stacked by the entryway!


5) Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge

This famous London monument was immortalized in gingerbread at a contest in Waikiki. The suspension bridge is completely supported by cookies and was part of an "around the world" display that featured famous landmarks from different countries. You don't even want to know how much powdered sugar was used in the making of this bridge! 


6) The Gingerbread Shire

The Shire

Can you believe this setting from The Lord of The Ring is made from edible materials? The grassy hillside is made entirely out of simple foods like toasted coconut, popcorn and pretzels.


7) Gingerbread Castle
