Our Gingerbread House Contest...

This could be a new family tradition. Everyone was supplied with crackers and candy. All they have to do is bring one 'secret weapon' to personalise their gingerbread house. I believe everyone had fun and I suppose we'll do this again next year...with a twist and a bigger prize!

The Midah gingerbread lane looks so yummy, these creations that come in all sizes & designs smell absolutely delicious!

Father and son hard at work! Nigel was eating his props too.

Auntie Gin and Alistair was a hilarious team. Working their charm on the judges at the same time!

Uncle John and Melissa's creation won them the 2nd place. Look at that structure and the snowman with the sunnies!

My dad and Faith having a go at the contest. Their creation is on the front. Stan & Nigel's creation is the one at the back with 'Muruku' toppings for roof tiles!

Victoria's white marshmallow castle and Jessica and Daniel's instant noodle creation at the foreground.

3rd-place winner - Victoria and Meow. Sorry guys for announcing you were last before. My mistake, truly.

Nigel posing with Eirene and Justine's creation on the right (looks like something out of Chocolate Factory) & Joy's winning creation on the left.

Judges giving out their points. The winner won by an extra half point!

Kenneth and Melissa's lovely hideaway cottage in the woods. Love the little entrance and the snowman with the top-hat.

Lone ranger Ah King trying his talent at building one alone.

Gingerbread house or Haunted mansion of Christmas? Created by Ai-lin, Lucy and Marina! (Notice the bananas hidden inside for foundation?!)

The winning team. Joy and Lydia had sketches done and I bet they spent some time brainstorming. Wow.

My dad cheered along!
