Your entry at Gingerbread Wonderland does not have to be a house. Perhaps you will create an edible diorama that is flat like this one.

Check out our photo gallery of past year's entries for inspiration on our Photo Gallery Page.

A favorite book, song, or movie are always popular themes. What will your family or group create?
