The Gingerbread House Competition 2012!

All you long time readers know what this is all about but for those of you who have never been a part of our gingerbread house competition then I’ll give you the quick scoop.

YEARS ago my hubby and our daughter would build a gingerbread house together. It was “their” thing. However I constantly felt the need to hover over them and supervise “their” efforts. Well one thing turned into another and now YEARS later we all do our own house and you the readers get to pick your favorite. I believe this is our 5th year on my blog doing it. It’s something we look forward to every year.

And just so you know, this is all for fun and no ones feelings get hurt. Trust me. And as usual I will never let on who made who’s house. I just number and name them and you pick your favorite in the comment box.

Are you ready?

Here they are in no particular order.

#1 The Candy Cabin



#2 The Confection Cottage

Well there you have it. Let the voting begin. Have Fun!




  1. My vote goes to #4 - The Nestled Inn....the walkway, paned windows and perfectly ruffled decor seal it for me! :)

  2. I really look forward to this competition every year! Oh my gosh, everyone has gotten so skilled at crafting their sweet gingerbread home! It is really hard to choose this time. They are all winners to me. But I'll go with the divinely created #4.

  3. I love all the little gingerbread houses but I have to say #4 ...I love the walkway :)

  4. You all make it so hard!! Good job everybody! #5 would make me eat it all up 'cause I love mints and I love the pretzels on the roof on #1. BUT, #4 is my absolute fave and my choice for winner!

    Big gingerbread-gurus-got-'r-done size hugs to you!! Fabulous!! Love & hugs!! :)

  5. I think this is such a great tradition!! It gets tougher and tougher to pick a winner though! I'm gonna go with #4 too, I think. Like a previous commenter, the walkway and paned windows are the clincher.

    That being said, my vote goes to.....#5 Casa de la Mint!
