Gingerbread houses

I was just sitting here, reminiscing about the years I spent going to school to be a pastry chef. We made so many tasty things! Last year we made gingerbread houses around Christmas. Of course, with it being a professional kitchen, we had a larger variety of tools and foods available to us. We made some amazing things! 
I think this year I’m going to make another gingerbread house, and use all the cool ideas I got from last year! Do you have any suggestions? I’d love to hear them! 
Here are some pictures of the gingerbread bakery that my group made.
The roof was made from sliced marshmallows.
I made these cute little marshmallow wedding cakes for in the window!
The window was made from gelatin sheets.
The tree was a paper cone. I used a star tip and royal icing to make the branches.

And here are some pictures of the other gingerbread houses that were made in the class. We were making a gingerbread village.
The church. I absolutely LOVE the design they made for it!
The jail. Aren’t those windows so cute!
This was probably my favorite one, the school house. I love how they used the Wheaties for the roof! They also used little candy rocks to make the chimney.
The train station.
