We had so many lovely entries for the Gingerbread House challenge, I didn't envy Holly in her task of judging them at all! So without further ado, I will hand you over to Holly Bell from recipes from a normal mum;
Incredibly hard to judge this competition as all entries were fantastic and creative in their own way. However, there has to be a winner I guess:
(Based on looks entirely of course)
Winner of my favourite 'traditional' gingerbread house goes to: Karen from Lavender and Lovage, for being the fairytale gingerbread house I'd most like to live in!
Winner of most chic gingerbread house, the one perhaps the late Chanel might have chosen to live in: Liz from Eliza Do Cook More.
Joint winners of most creative interpretation of a gingerbread house goes to: Jacqueline from Cakeboule and Dave from Baking Beats
Winner of most original idea for a wedding favour: Becky from Mint Custard.
This was so hard to judge! Maybe next year you could ask people to get together to create a gingerbread town - where every blogger brings their house with them - a Guinness record perhaps?
Thank you so much to everyone who took part, and once again massive apologies for my terrible timing. Another huge thank you to Holly Bell for being our judge.
Did you enjoy the challenge? Do you think the right people won?
