Build a Gingerbread House

The object of this contest is to build a real life Gingerbread House using edible materials! This is not a digital contest, so no digital entries. You can't eat pixels.


Rules

1. Your Gingerbread House must be built by using any type of food. You are not required to use gingerbread. You are free to use crackers, other types of bread, chocolate, candy, etc. However, you must use real food in this contest! The small use of non food items (like toothpicks) are allowed to improve the structural integrity of your submission. They must be used sparingly though and it must be obvious that your submission consists of actual edible materials.

2. When building your Gingerbread House, you must take at least 3 pictures of the process with your Username and "2018 Winter Festival" physically visible. Here is a link to last year's contest for reference:

2017 Winter Festival - Build a Gingerbread House

3. When you are finished with your entry, come back to this thread and post it here.

A Player Guide on How to Upload Images

4. You must create your entry on your own! You cannot have someone else build your Gingerbread House for you, although having some assistance is perfectly fine and reasonable. All submissions must also be brand new; you cannot use previous submissions. Lastly, please try and come up with your own unique designs. Obviously, using a kit is okay to do and those will probably be similar because kits are generally universal. What I am referring to would be copying someone else's previous design from a past contest and redoing it as your own, as some of you have come up with some pretty awesome unique designs in the past.

If you have never created a Gingerbread House before, here are some handy tutorials to get you started:

Link 2 (Offsite)


5. Please do not reserve posts. Only post when you are ready to submit an entry. If your entry is still ongoing, you may post early with the progress that you currently have and edit your post as you finish.

6. Please do not ping me unless you have a specific question or concern that I need to address. Thank you.

7. The due date for submitting your entry is by the end of the Winter Festival. Please refer to the eventual Overview thread for this final date. Please note, this contest is being posted early, so no Overview thread is available yet.


Prizes

All submissions will be judged by Krinadon and Faiona. We will announce winners for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Everyone who submits a valid entry will be awarded nice participation prizes including the Title: Gingerbread Architect.

Above all else, have fun! These contests are just meant to be fun. =)

I'm sorry, but if you can't create an entry that meets the criteria of the rules above it won't be accepted.

Wow. Last Friday my school had a gingerbread house building event. All four grades compete, and the teachers do too. My grade got second place. :D
Although... will I try making another gingerbread house... that's the real question.
I do want to try this challenge though!

[we put a LOT of salt on our house. for "snow"...]

For my first year of my sylestia time I have an opportunity to participate! The thing is, the gingerbread house I will be building will be with a team at a Christian youth group. (None of them play sylestia.) Would it be okay to enter our progress? I didnt know since it would not be just me building it.

If it's a group of people working together to build it, unfortunately no. It has to mainly just be 'your' creation. Assistance is allowed. But group effort is not.
