National Gingerbread House Competition

♥ My new holiday computer wallpaper ♥


My town (Asheville, NC) is lucky enough to host the National Gingerbread House Competition, and last night, Jarrod and I checked out this year's entrants. I won't bore you with the winners, but here are my favorites:


Adult category: Très Parisian! Très jolie!


Teen category: Rainbow food truck! Figgy Puddin!


Youth category . . .


WAL-MART! SECURITY CAMERA! HA HA HA!!!

  1. I am curious to what inspired the youth to choose Wal-Mart for their gingerbread house. I guess there are toys there or maybe they really like Where The Heart Is.

  2. I was really hoping the Walmart one would have a gingerbread Juggalo.

  3. Do they still display them at the Grove Park? DH and I are going after Christmas - we've been once before and looking at all the gingerbread houses was our fave part!

  4. Connie — *Where the Heart Is high-five*

    Jade — OMG LET'S ENTER A GINGERBREAD JUGGALO GATHERING NEXT YEAR.

    Tracy — Yes! Though the longer you wait, they more they've fallen apart. (Though that's pretty fun, too.)

  5. I struggle with the little kits (maybe I shouldn't admit that?) so I can imagine the work that goes into those! :) Maybe next year I'll take a trip up there to see that, it looks pretty neat.

  6. Best contest ever! Although it makes me feel a bit bad about my gingerbread-house-making skills... Just got my library's copy of Lola! Can't wait to read it! I just finished my novel and am in the process of querying. Do you have any tips?

  7. Wow, I only wish I could that! I can't even get my gingerbread houses to stay up! They always end up being gingerbread houses in earthquake or tornado zones. . . :)
