Gingerbread House Contest

Calling all bakers - professional to novice to group efforts! We want to see your gingerbread creations.

General Info

There is no fee to participate and this is a friendly competition. We ask only that all houses are made out of edible materials (but no gelatin or buttercream frosting) and mounted on a sturdy base that does not exceed 12” deep by 20” wide. Taste is NOT a factor. Kits are acceptable. There is no particular theme, so let your creativity be your guide!
