3rd Annual Gingerbread Competition!

Updated: Dec 10, 2021

Join us for the 3rd Annual Gingerbread Competition in support of

Make-A-Wish Connecticut!

Hello everyone and welcome to our 3rd Annual Gingerbread Competition. I would like to thank everyone who participated last year for their incredible support and hard work. We are so excited to have you join us again this year and can't wait to see the new creations!

For those who may be new to the event, welcome! We are so grateful for your support and hope you enjoy the event. Read on to learn more:

We are challenging teams to create incredible Gingerbread Houses!

The best part of this fun event is that all proceeds go to Make-A-Wish Connecticut, an organization that grants life-changing wishes to local children with critical illnesses.

We will be mailing gingerbread kits to each participant's home so that everyone can participate safely and on their own time!

A $100 entry fee will provide an individual or team of any size with all the materials needed to build a complete house. Teams are also encouraged to go beyond the materials provided to make the best creation possible!

With regard to building materials, we ask that the majority of materials used be edible and that all visible elements of the creation also be edible. Using glue to help bind pieces is allowed.
