More than a bit of a cheater, this “Gingerbread” Log Cabin is actually made with various shapes and sizes of Pretzel Sticks & Pretzel Snacks. It would not qualify for the National Gingerbread House Competition, but it does qualify to be included in our list. We’re not quite as much of a stickler for the Gingerbread Rules.

Hotel Harrington stood on the banks of the Grasse River in Canton, NY until 1959 when it was sold and demolished.  This beautiful Gingerbread House is a near-exact replica of  majestic hotel. Even if you don’t know the history, or have no connection to Canton, NY… this is a truly magnificent Gingerbread House.

Here is a picture of the Historic Hotel Harrington in Canton, NY so that you can see for yourself how lovingly this image was recreated in gingerbread form.

Yes, this is actually made from Gingerbread and other edible materials.  Well, at least the minimum amount required for it to quality for last year’s National Gingerbread Competition. Although, once again, we’ve deviated from the true “houses”, once again… this was too spectacular to not take that detour.
