‘Tis the season to make merry. And what’s merrier than gingerbread!? (Baking with it, constructing with it, devouring it…) In this spirit, we’ve scoped the interwebs for some great gingerbread architecture, from the Villa Savoye to the Guggenheim Museum. The following “houses” are all modeled on modernist classics. Enjoy these bites of some sweet design.

The Glass House, Philip Johnson (Sweet Lisa’s Exquisite Cakes for the Glass House)

Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright (Tsontakis Architecture with Classic Cakes & Confections)

Farnsworth House, Mies van der Rohe (April Reed Cake Design)

Vitrahaus, Herzog & de Meuron (Herzog & de Meuron)

Trellick Tower, Ernő Goldfinger (Agnes Lloyd-Platt)

Villa Savoye, Le Corbusier (Marcus Hansson)

Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright (again) (Garden Melodies)

Guggenheim Museum, Frank Lloyd Wright (Devenny Group LTD with Kimmie’s Cakes)

Sydney Opera House, Jorn Utzon (designer unknown, via)

Bonus! FLDubbs judges a confectionary homage to his Guggenheim Museum
