This category will test your families/friends skills when you create a traditional holiday gingerbread house.
Get creative! Think outside the traditional look of a gingerbread home.
Are you ready for some football? Perhaps, you are more of a soccer fan or prefer hockey or cross country! No cookies please lol - we just thought it was a cool picture!
Three judges will review each of the entries in each of the three categories and will award points based on:
- Must be ALL edible - no rice crispy structures, metal supports, plastic, etc. can be used to create or decorate the structure.
- You may either purchase a kit from one of our local stores such as Wal-Mart, Michael's, or Shop Rite although we've seen some in other local stores as well!
OR, if you are feeling ambitious, get the family together and make your own gingerbread!
- MUST include a photo of the family/friends working on the decoration process to be displayed with your creation.
