The Gingerbread House Competition Winners Will Give You Serious Baking Inspiration!

On November 21, 150 gingerbreads artists from all across the land congregated at Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina, for the the 24th annual National Gingerbread House Competition. The competition, which is the biggest in the country, offers a grand prize of $8,500, with total prizes for all categories valued at more than $22,000, so competition is fierce.

Take a look at some of these insane entries:

Adult Top 10; Jessica Isaacson; Pelzer, SC

Adult Top 10; Billie Mochow; Burns TN

Adult Top 10; Team Gingerhouse; Burlington, NC

Adult Top 10 Gail Oliver; Johnson City, TN

 The grand prize, however, ultimately went to this little number by Beatriz Müller, Innisfil, of Ontario, Canada. Now, who wouldn't want to live in a place like that?
