Shiny.

Or, go large.



Though the poster said "just don't eat the girl."

Erring away from the space theme, but really cool!

Back in 2014, Kristie and the kids made wofati gingerbread houses!



Some of our ant village folks are requesting that we make these (or Oehler-style gingerbread houses) this year! I'm in!

I'm thinking we could use a peanut butter play dough as a type of cob, large pretzels as the logs, regular pretzels for junkpole fences, chocolate rocks, coconut dyed green for grass (veg dyes of course), icing for snow, licorice tubes for RMH building....what else am I missing?

Have you all seen the gingerbread death star?

Or the "Starship Gingerprise?"

When trying to find those two at their source, I found this Gingerbread U.S.S. Enterprise, too:


See the startrek.com article for more photos.

This is a link to watch one of myvfavourite people making a gingerbread dream barn that she would like to build as a therapy centre for her work with children and adults with special needs.  As Tim says, they are going to need a lot of smarties to make the full size barn!

Wowzers!!!  What a great thread!  

I showed my wife the Serenity pic and now she loves Paul too!  (I'm still working to fully convert her to being a Permie, so I appreciate the help!  She's fully converted to being a Firefly fan.  She loves Gir too, so there is hope.)

Amanda, thanks for posting that video.  It is great.  I wish I had found that one when I posted the gingerbread recipes.  She makes it look so simple and I love the animal cutouts.

After looking again I just realized the Tardis and Dalek above are not gingerbread!!!  They're graham crackers.  So I had to try again.  I love this one especially because of the crossover quote :)

Those are all great gingerbread houses! Anne, I love that you started a thread on how to make gingerbread houses with those recipes.

I some times read this hilarious blog called McMansion Hell. Well, lo and behold, they had a McGingerbread Hell competition!!

Spoiler alert, next follows the picture of the first place winner.

Casa de McGingerHell by Beth and Tina C.:


Though seriously, go to the post linked above to see even more pictures of this one, plus all the other winners and honorable mentions.

Using snarky, on-point humor, loads of sugar, with creative genius sprinkled on top to mock garish examples of consumerism and materialism? Yes, please!
