Gingerbread House Competition

December 14, 2016 Posted in: Arts

GingBreadHouseIMG_7371The judges have decided! We are proud to announce the winners of this year’s Gingerbread House Competition! Contestants were only allowed to use edible building materials– no cardboard, glue, wire, or anything artificial. This year we saw materials ranging from plain graham crackers and gingerbread cookies to even matzos and rice crispies! With the potential to collapse and crumble, building with food is much harder than it sounds.
