Unleash your imagination

In gingerbread house making, the sky is the limit for your creativity. Think beyond traditional designs and colors. Let your imagination run wild with unconventional ideas - maybe a gingerbread space station or a fantasy castle. This is your canvas to illustrate a story or a dream in edible form.


Attention to detail

Small details can transform a simple gingerbread house into a masterpiece. Focus on intricate icing patterns, tiny candy windowpanes, or even small gingerbread figures to bring your creation to life. These details not only show off your skill but also make your gingerbread house uniquely yours.

Color texture and play

Experiment with a variety of colors and textures. Use different types of candy, icing, and edible decorations to create contrasts and highlights. This can add depth and vibrancy to your gingerbread house, making it visually striking and delightful.


Fun and enjoyment

Remember, the heart of this competition is enjoyment and celebration. Don't stress over perfection. Enjoy the process of creating, laughing, and maybe even making a bit of a mess. The joy you find in building your gingerbread house will shine through in your final creation.
