Gingerbread, Gingerbread Everywhere

We went to the Oak Grove Inn  in Asheville, NC yesterday and had a wonderful time.

Because it's Christmas, they had their annual Gingerbread House Contest.  They had four age categories judged separately.  The best went on to New York where they were put on display.  The grand prize winners were on Good Morning America today. To see the winners, click here Thought I'd share a bit of what we saw.

Hundreds of hours were spent to make each of the houses. All are made of gingerbread and royal fondant icing. Every part of the entry is edible

Not all were houses

All were amazing works of art.

Some had more icing than others

It was a real treat to see how creative people can be.  

What are some things you and your family have done this Christmas season?
