Gingerbread houses are awesome!  They combine craft, cooking, and scale-model construction in one delicious, sugary project that's fun for all ages.

We'll be making our own gingerbread houses this year, but we want to see yours! Build a gingerbread house, and enter it in our Gingerbread House Slideshow Contest to win Instructables Pro memberships and Robot t-shirt gift packs!

The rules are simple: 
 - Make a gingerbread house (a joint effort with friends or family is fine) and submit a slideshow with at least three pictures of your awesome creation. 
 - Include at least one overview and one detail shot of the finished gingerbread house - in-progress pictures are optional.
 - So we all know that it's your gingerbread house, at least one of the pictures must include something with your username written on it!

This is a speed contest so it will only be open until December 20. Now get going, and make a totally sweet gingerbread house!

Multiple entries are allowed. International entries are also allowed.
