Over-the-Top Gingerbread Houses

Slide 4 of 14

A Christmas Story

Location: The Seattle Sheraton's 2009 Gingerbread Village (Seattle, WA)

Prompted by the theme "Reel Christmas," a team of Seattle Sheraton culinary staff and area architecture firm DLR Group created this cheeky homage to the 1983 Christmas comedy film classic A Christmas Story. Weighing around 200 pounds, the gingerbread structure featured edible reenactments of memorable movie scenes—including fondant versions of Ralphie and friend Flick by the flagpole in an amazingly detailed gingerbread neighborhood, and a recreation of the film's iconic leg lamp sporting licorice "fringe."
