No big weekend plans? Try one of these architecturally inspired gingerbread house designs.

Fallingwater Is my favorite!

And/or, if you're in London, you can go and check out this year's Gingerbread City, as mentioned in the Zaha Hadid Architects entry. It's at Somerset House this year, and this is the opening weekend.

That list got seriously less dramatic after number 3.

I wish the guggenheim had color pictures. I love the palm beach house, and that they just used a solid bar of pink chocolate as the door, it translates so well

That went from wow and haha, never in a million years could I to hmm . . . maybe with a lot patience and do-overs . . . .

Or I could just let my niece cover the gingerbread with M&Ms, hard candies, fragments of candy canes, and Andes candies like we usually do.

This is very timely for me, because we're having our annual gingerbread house competition and work and I need to defend my first place title. Thanks!

I like the idea of playing with food, but is there a savory version? Cha siu baohaus?

These are fun, but nothing will top the gingerbread Hogwarts (and dragon, whomping willow, flying car, etc) I saw a free years ago. I'd love to see another themed one, where chefs and architects are all working on a theme together.

ArkDes museum in Stockholm has an annual gingerbread house contest. This year's entries are kind of a mixed bag, with volcanoes way over represented.
