Gingerbread House Competition


To celebrate this holiday season, join us for the AFC’s 2020 Gingerbread House Competition!

By using entirely edible products and your imagination, we want to see what structures you can design with all sorts of sweet decorations. We hope this that this will stir your creativity and celebrate the kick-off of Design LAB 2021. Design LAB’s theme this year will be DWELLINGS, so we want to see your best attempt at a tasty handmade home. You could try a historic or popular culture icon’s home, your dream home, a very traditional gingerbread house, or something that pushes the envelope entirely – the possibilities are only limited to your imagination!

December 15th: Designs Due – these will be posted on a Facebook Album for accolades and to compete for the Perfectly Popular Sugar Plum

December 22nd: Winners Announced!

Awards will be given for the following categories:

Perfectly Popular Sugar Plum (most social media votes)
Well Constructed Cookie (best structural integrity)
North Pole Nostalgia (most nostalgic)
Genius Gingerbread (most creative)

Prizes will be awarded to all of our winners!

This event is family-friendly (as long as your Gingerbread House is). Each ticket buys you one submission, but feel free to buy multiple entries if more members of your family/organization/friends went to send in individual designs. Have fun with this! You could set up a digital design party to make the gingerbread houses with your friends simultaneously and sharing constructing techniques as you go or do a family build night.

All entries will be emailed in to They must be submitted by 10pm on Tuesday the 15th to be counted. Further details on design criteria and submissions will be included in the event packet.

We are looking forward to seeing all of your amazing and delicious designs!  We can’t wait to see how you think outside the brick to make your gingerbread houses. Good Luck!
