2021 People's Choice - Favorite Gingerbread Display

Folks Are Dying To Get In! by Kate and Keira Bartoldus-Jeydel win the

2021 Overall People's Choice Award.

My 8 year old daughter and I made this Halloween house together. :) Our spooky gingerbread haunted house is surrounded by 13 fresh "graves", and topped with hand piped spiderweb detailing on the main roof and a skeleton's rib cage on the turret roof. The windows are crushed butterscotch candy and the monster hands, ghosts and sprinkles are sugar decorations from Wilton. Purple and white piping made with royal icing. We had to laugh after we assembled the house and realized that the design lacked one little detail, a door to actually get into the house. We figured the only way to get into the house would be through the graves outside, hence the title of our entry "Folks are dying to get in!". Happy Halloween!

2021 Judge's Choice - Creepiest Gingerbread

Lucky by Jessica Frost wins the 2021 Judge's Choice - Creepiest Gingerbread Award.

Lucky the leprechaun was inspired by my vacation in Ireland. Skull, bust, and hat are all Gingerbread cookies. The face is covered in gingerbread clay and details are hand sculpted. I threw in some foil wrapped chocolate coins from his pot of gold.
