About the Cool Gingerbread House Ideas

In trying to figure out how to decorate a gingerbread house for my own holiday celebration, I've collected some photos to give me some creative gingerbread house ideas (in the slideshow). Some of these edible homes are truly incredible in their scope. Some are whimsical. Some are thought-provoking.

If you feel that you don't have what it takes to execute these cool gingerbread house ideas, take heart. There are plenty of gingerbread house kits on the market. And even if there weren't, your efforts are still worth it. The fun you'll have when making a gingerbread house fit for a storybook character will make it all worth it in the end.
