Le Parker Meridien Gingerbread Extravaganza

I went to the lobby at Le Parker Meridien to check out the gingerbread house display.  For $1, one can vote on her favorite.  Proceeds go to City Harvest.  The most unusual gingerbread house was the typewriter by Baked Ideas.  It was flawless in execution, I have to say, and probably should win for creativity and flawlessness.

However, I like the Central Park Boathouse by BLT Steak.

A topical one is Occupy North Pole by Tribeca Treats

This one was the most gingerbread-housey of the bunch and had a sense of humor.

The Cupcake Cafe‘s Come On to My House (Gretel’s Temptation) was an appropriately macabre gingerbread house.

The grandfather clock by Soutine Bakery stood out for its simplicity and fitting message, “Happy Times.”

 The charming Olson Manor is by Gramercy Tavern.

 I love the little round gingerbread stones for the walkway…too cute!


 Last but not least, the Mini Parker, by the hotel’s restaurant, Norma’s.
