The cutest gingerbread houses ever

Not Martha’s Amazing Gingerbread Houses

Megan, from Not Martha, is excellent when it comes to devising unusual holiday goodies. This year, her take on a traditional gingerbread house is no exception. She baked up some mini gingerbread houses that fit on the rim of a mug of hot chocolate (or coffee). Although I’ve seen gingerbread competitions with houses almost big enough to live in, these mini houses are just as impressive – and a whole lot cuter!

Megan has pdfs of the patterns she used available if you want to try your hand at making some yourself. It takes a little bit of time and precision to put them together, but it is well worth the effort because the effect is amazing. A batch of these, and a few coffee mugs, and you would have one impressive last minute Christmas gift, too!


  1. Perfect title for this post – they are the cutest ever!!

  2. Very creative and cute gingerbread,feels like see real houses on the snow.This will inspired people to try this at home for Christmas!

  3. They are just the cutest thing.

    I’ll see if we can do this for the holidays. Looks like it might take some effort. I think it’s worth the effort though.

    Happy Holidays!

  4. These are really cute! I love ginger, but for some reason absolutely hate gingerbread (go figure!). So I might attempt to make them with chocolate or vanilla cookies instead.

  5. Another variant uses a boiled dough that can be molded like clay to form inedible statuettes or other decorations. Medieval bakers used carved boards to create elaborate designs.

  6. Looks like it might take some effort. I think it’s worth the effort though.

  7. Seriously, so cute. But I think I’d have to quit my job in order to make them. maybe next year? ;)
