It’s coming very clear that next year I’ll need to sponsor an official gingerbread house/creation competition. I’ve had so many submissions this last week I can’t post them all, but here are a few of my favorites. First, this Tonantzin Aztec Goddess/Virgen of Guadalupe by Stella of Stellar Cakes in Cottage Grove, Oregon. It’s something of a miracle in itself:
Then there’s this trio of houses made by reader Fiona…
…and here’s what they looked like when her nieces were finished with them. That’s the way the house-shaped cookie crumbles, I guess.
And lastly, several readers sent in this picture of a gingerbread version of Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Falling Water house, put together by the folks over at the Garden Melodies blog. It’s well worth all the attention it’s been getting.
