And now...we're thrilled to announce the winners

of the 5th annual Make-A-Wish Connecticut Gingerbread Competition!


1st Place!

Barbie Dream World

Richard Turlington Architects


2023's blockbuster Barbie movie provided plenty of inspiration for RTA to create this perfectly pink dreamworld. The team supplemented their materials with pink foam core which, while pretty, was not the easiest to work with (a lesson learned for next year!). They enjoyed sampling all the pink candies before deeming them worthy of the sweet design, and they braved many afternoons spent spray-painting the creation to achieve just the right shades of pink.



2nd Place

Air Strip

Whiting Turner



3rd Place

Lighting of the Tree

SPAcialty Group



4th Place

"Up, Up, and Icing Away"

QA+M Architecture



5th Place

Home Alone

ID3A



6th Place

Cookie Masters

Svigals



This year's Wish Kid Choice Award goes to...

QA+M Architecture with their Up, Up & Away submission.


Make - A - Wish Connecticut's Wish Kid's Choice was easy because, Up, is her favorite movie and this gingerbread house made her smile and made her heart warm!










Everyone at Richard Turlington Architects wants to express our sincere appreciation for every individual, company, and family that submitted an entry, gave a donation, and showed their support for this year's event. Without you, this would not be possible.
