Okay, so I know this is total kitsch, but I love all these brilliant gingerbread houses that honor mid-century and modern architecture.

Okay, so I know this is total kitsch, but I love all these brilliant gingerbread houses that honor mid-century and modern architecture. And while we love beautiful design, I can pretty much guarantee that we will be making a traditional gingerbread house. From a box. Sorry. My talents only go so far.

From the University of Texas Architectural School blog, a gingerbread house of Le Corbusier’s flat roofed Villa Savoye. The house was the result of a contest sponsored by the Chicago Tribune celebrating Chicago architectural legacy (from whence all good things come).  Gorgeous.

From Baz at Atomic Indy, a gingerbread replica of his very awesome mid-century home. I so wish I could do this.

From an old post on Inhabitots, a lovely ‘Cake’ Study House 09 with banana succulents, almond cacti, hazelnut flowers, a pepper Palm tree, almond grass and pepper ferns. Modern pastry landscaping at its best.

I love this one for the Lifesaver Wintergreen MCM wall. Absolutely perfect from Craft_Schmaft on Flickr.

And the coup de grace would of course need inspiration from the master, a gingerbread house Falling Water. From Garden Melodies, the most gorgeous gingerbread house I have ever seen.  12 hours of work put into it! That is dedication.

 As I was rolling out the trash and recycling bins this morning, I was looking at our house and thinking  maybe I could do that.  Except I have no idea how to make gingerbread that thin. Does anyone have a recipe to share?
