@LissaCHere's my attempt at a very small pre-fab gingerbread house from last year:

I knew it would go gloriously wrong!
My ex-wife and I made a gingerbread house, and gingerbread men, every year in December. Even though I'm not into arts and crafts stuff, it was actually fun. I don't have any pictures.

Don't feel bad. I took cake decorating classes and got fairly good at it, even made some wedding cakes, as well as a sculpted cartoonist/cabbage patch type kids cake for a retirement party for a child care place's director, but even I couldn't do the doggy one as it's more than likely sculpted modeling chocolate and fondant covered sculpted cake or rice crispies. The Belle cake, if it is indeed a cake, is a printed edible transfer sheet that goes on a smoothly frosted or fondant covered cake. Just about anybody can do 1 of those. My daughter even managed 1 for a GD's birthday cake.

I hate Christmas and that’s exactly the thing I would never do. Now, if we talk about a Halloween one...
Do you get the Food Network channel there? They have a gingerbread Halloween show and also Halloween Wars, where they use pumpkin, sugar art and cake to make fantastic Halloween displays.

We do, but I am super picky with food and the only desserts I eat are ice cream, dulce de leche or sponge cake with a kind of egg frostering.

Well, I doubt any one eats these and they are WAY beyond a home cook's skill level, but they are fun to watch and be amazed by what they make.

BTW, you don't usually eat gingerbread houses. The baked dough is not really conducive to eating as it's very hard and it also gets stale after being on display for sometimes weeks.
