17 Examples of Gingerbread Architecture

From Iconic Museum Structures to Wizardly Castles

— December 24, 2013 — Art & Design
Gingerbread making has been a popular Christmas pastime for years, and with these truly stunning examples of gingerbread architecture, I'm not so sure people will just be making gingerbread homes anymore.

The art of making a gingerbread house isn't an easy one but it does bring family and friends together during the hardy holiday season. And if making a simple one story home with the family isn't easy then I can't begin to imagine how hard it must be to construct iconic museums and galleries out of the tasty treat, or even modernized homes. Some have even gone as far crafting iconic film architecture out of gingerbread.

From edible presidential living abodes to massive livable gingerbread communities, gingerbread architecture is not your regular gingerbread house making with your family and friends.
