12 Fantastic Gingerbread Houses

I’ve got some beautifully creative gingerbread houses to share with you in this post.

Last week I went to a Christmas party with my FitTap tap dancing class. The Omni Hotel La Costa Resort in Carlsbad California was celebrating it’s 50th anniversary. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they were displaying a whole bunch of elaborate gingerbread houses in the lobby. I’m sharing my favorites with you.

These photos hardly do the actual ginger bread houses justice because these photos are just a few  inches while the actual gingerbread structures were two to three feet tall. The details were amazing.

This first photo is the grand prize winner. I think it was chosen because it highlighted the theme of La Costa Resort as well as the anniversary.

This gingerbread house was inspired by the King Edward Hotel in Toronto Canada. It even had semitransparent candy “glass” in the windows. This was several feet tall.

This one has a lot of great details.

Here’s a better look at the details. Notice the bows on the tiny gift, the Christmas treen ornaments. and the striped poles. And, there is so much more.

"Frozen" gingerbread-house

This was named “Frozen Gingerbread Castle”. It was inspired by the Disney movie Frozen. This was a tall structure, too.

I like how this display is in keeping with the original Spanish style of La Costa Resort with it’s golf and swimming amenities.
