We do love holidays at The Solvang Bakery; each celebration presents a new opportunity for expressing our culinary creativity.   But we must admit that the Christmas season has a special place in our hearts.  Back in 1995 we held our first gingerbread house workshop at the Buellton Parks and Recreation building, and since then we’ve been hooked.

We’ve shipped our cheery holiday gingerbread houses and gingerbread house kits throughout the country to celebrities and people just like your family and ours.  We’re honored to have our Hanukkah and Christmas gingerbread houses in the homes of sports stars, rock stars, movie stars, and TV stars.  Authors whose books sit on our bookshelves, and folks you read about in The Wall Street Journal celebrate the holidays with gingerbread houses from The Solvang Bakery.


Custom Gingerbread House for a Serious Yankees ‘Fan’


Not comfortable resting on our laurels, each year we make improvements to our standard designs.  They might include a slightly different window configuration; new characters perched outside the front door, or a whole new product like our Winter Hanukkah Gingerbread House.  Each gingerbread house is carefully crafted by hand in our Santa Ynez Valley bakery.
