Top 10 Unusual Things Made With Gingerbread

This is not so much nursery rhyme inspired more kids cooking time inspired because it just doesn’t matter where you live or what sort of upbringing you have had you have definitely done one of these two things. 1) Made a Gingerbread house or maybe 2) seen a picture of one. In my opinion, the humble Gingerbread house is like an old watercolour painting, even the bad ones look great and they are all open to artistic interpretation meaning they don’t have to look like a house at all! So with that in mind lets walk through the gallery they call the internet and try to discover just what is…

This is a real spin on the gingerbread house from the story books as it also covers the “old woman” nursery rhyme as well, it looks amazing, tasty and is well worth a place on this list.

6 – The Lord of the Ginger Rings! (…why did that sound rude?!?)

Bilbo Baggins would definitely give this a thumbs up as it is a Gingerbread Hobbit house! Even the little village sign is made from Gingerbread. The whole thing is amazing if a little impossible for us mere mortals to think about copying.

5 – The perfect companion.

What I really liked about this Gingerbread Portal 2 cube is that any of us could make it! If you think about it, it is only 5 (if you don’t make the bottom) sides and that means only 5 flat pieces of Gingerbread to make and a little bit of icing!

Gingerbread Serenity

4 – Made with perfect serenity

For those that don’t know, this ship “Serenity” is a fictional spaceship that appears in Joss Whedon’s Firefly television series.

3 – The Best Ever?!?

I just had to include this one because not only is it on of the few actual houses made from Gingerbread but it is also incredible and it is as simple as that. It looks stunning and is in fact rather basic in design meaning most of us could have a go at making it. Well, try anyway!

Gingerbread TARDIS

Is that really a Gingerbread TARDIS? Oh yes! You can stop rubbing your eyes because it’s real and would go great at any little nerds birthday party. (even I would go nuts for it!)
