    Not sure if this qualifies as a valid entry, but I made my house and decoration using ice cream and chocolate since that's what we traditionally serve at chrismas dinner with the family. Considering how unforgiving these materials are, I need a chat with my family regarding next years dessert. Tempted to introduce gingerbread into our culture now :D

    This is what I was aiming for:

    This is what I got as a result:[​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG] @hollywood and I created our log cabin! We even put a PK bear in the grass since our house has a PK bear hanging out at all times. Neither of us have ever made gingerbread houses before but we knew we wanted to be a little creative with it!

    All have been really great so far!

    Kids decided they wanted to do one this year...I let my boys (8 and 4) do the assembly and decorating...I asked my 8 year old to put the UOF's on there...then added my own "story" to it before it just as quickly became dismantled and eaten...but there is nothing worse that recalling into your house to find out that someone didn't despawn their treasure chest and they leave an Ancient Wyrm wandering around...

    Home made ginger bread, sooo much icing and more candy than i have ever bought in my life!
    We ended up making 8 Gingerbread houses in total this year. Kids had a blast as well as us older folks lol. I took the leftovers and made the two on the left and my nieces and nephew worked together with me on the the far right one after they had finished their own.

    So without further ado here is our entry.

    Hoping these are under the wire, I wasn't able to upload them until now...

    It was kinda hard to capture the whole thing in pics but you can get the idea at least!

    The character is a cookie I painted with food coloring, as are the trees to the left of the house, and the brown thing beside her is supposed to be a sack (made by wrapping caramel around a hershey's kiss).

    Among the items on the roof are statues, a christmas tree (made with a sugar cone), cannonballs, armor, gold stacks, glowing runes, runebooks and kegs.

    I did Jolly Ranchers stained glass for the windows and made them light up...

    Most innovative: @Xiulan for the candy stained glass, the teleporters, and glowing runes.
    Most elaborate: @Rachel for the action scene outside the castle
    Funniest: @Alucard's plot. I literally lol'd.

    Is that a photo of your gingerbread house or just an example of one you liked from last year?
