Alpine Gingerbread House

I want to live in the Alpine Gingerbread House, out in the snow, in the middle of the woods... which was the inspiration behind the Architectural Design of this gingerbread house.


The approximate footprint/size of this house is 8" wide x 6" deep x 9" tall.


The Alpine Gingerbread House is a fun gingerbread house for beginners. It provides one more wall than the standard four walls to gain a little more experience, and the roof line is simple and yet whimsical. The fireplace is also easy to construct and can be excluded if desired.


This Alpine Gingerbread House has been decorated by a few gingerbread designers, all who brought their own design flair!
