Loving the Gingerbread prison yard from Gingerbread Ghetto. It has a lot of good ones - Gingerbread Serial Killer House, Gingerbread Peep Show, Gingerbread Check Cashing Place. It's highly entertaining.
We've kind of started a tradition of doing to Disney every Halloween, but I really would like to go for Christmas sometime. Then I could see this amazing gingerbread house in person - the Grand Floridian resort makes one every year. Photo by Flickr user Emily Gracey.
Pirates + Gingerbread = Perfection. It's called "Pirates of the Jelly Bean" and was part of the annual George Eastman gingerbread house display. Photo by Flickr user Zeus_the_Ferret.
Flickr user heath_bar posted this one and the one below. His office had a gingerbread competition and this is what one of the groups came up with. I'm insanely impressed. I work with a creative bunch of people, but I'm not seeing any of them coming up with gingerbread Mt. Rainier.
This one is a display in a Seattle hotel. From Flickr user Sweet Tortilla.
Of course there's a gingerbread replica of the White House as well. Created by the executive pastry chef, the cookie Executive Mansion can be seen in the State Dining room during the holiday season. Check out close ups and shots of the whole process here.
I've always wanted to go to the Winchester Mystery House ... I never thought of making my own while I wait until I get the chance to visit.

So, I took the chicken route and tossed the gingerbread 'glop', baked up some pumkin-rum cake, cut out cubes and thin(1" thick)squares for the roofs, trimmed off some of the cubes so the two sides of the roof would fit, frosted and decorated each "gingerbread" house with different candies.
They were a hit! So, I made them agin, this year. Hmm...tradition starting to bloom?
