This piece in our December newsletter was so popular we decided to post it here. Enjoy!
The wedding cake house, gingerbread trim, and the witch’s house in the story of Hansel and Gretel all sound good enough to eat, but only the witch’s house was actually edible, and even that was a fairy tale. There are, however, plenty of edible buildings around, if you know where to look.
For the holiday season, we’ve assembled a Pinterest board of architectural gems in gingerbread. It is a fun way to mark the holidays and celebrate the architectural heritage we love so much.
