It's time for our annual Gingerbread Contest!! Kiss  Each year, we've had so much fun seeing your gingerbread creations.  If this is your first year on Craftster, be sure to check out our previous years!

It's time to get out those mixing bowls and get crafting!  Your challenge this month is to make and decorate a gingerbread house.  Any type of house is permitted (cottage, castle, etc.) as long as it has walls and a roof of gingerbread.  Your entry must be made of edible parts, but it's not limited to sweets only.  The only non-edible parts allowed are a base, lighting and/or electrical components.

No gingerbread house kits for this challenge.  No size restraints; miniature to life-size houses are tasty and welcome for this challenge.

Rules:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Dec 3 - Jan 8 ) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Jan 1 - Jan 8 2019. No sooner.  No later.  On Jan 1, there will be a special folder created for entries.  We will reply with the folder/board link here on this thread.
  • Voting will happen from Jan 8 - Jan 15 2019.
  • The winner will be officially announced on our first business Monday of the next month -- in our February newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project.

Prizes:

At the end, we'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and this Craftster prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):
Their choice of any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

Me, too!  I'll never forget the "UP!" gingerbread house.  That was one of my favorites.

Oh, that is just crazy. I'd be too tempted to have a bite, lol. And imagine if someone had half a glass of wine too many and fell into one of the walls? I'm sure I love that house but it's a giant, delicious recipe for disaster, haha.

When I went to Disneyland one year at Christmas they had a walk in Gingerbread house. It smelled so good. They also had a children's baking class going on and the kids were trying to push their handmade cookies off on people walking by. Of course the one picking his nose tried to give me the cookie he decorated.  Cheesy

There actually isn't one yet because I can't move posts right now, which is driving me crazy, by the way. Cheesy 

We called this one a wash because both participants used kits for the base of their entries.  We talked about it privately and thanked them very much for participating anyway! Smiley  Their houses are really awesome!
