Anyone who's ever tried their hand at making a gingerbread house knows just how incredibly frustrating it can be. That's why it's both awe-inspiring and jealousy-inducing to see these intricate replicas of houses that look like actual houses instead of cardboard boxes made out of graham crackers. But these gingerbread houses are of an entirely different breed. After all, why make a replica of another stodgy old Victorian house when you can immortalize Winterfell in gingerbread? Maybe these creations will inspire your own visions of sugarplums, or maybe they'll just inspire envy, but don't worry if you can't match this level of culinary expertise. After all, you know what they say: if you can't beat 'em, eat 'em (The gingerbread, guys! Just the gingerbread.)
