1st Runner Up: Victorian Row Houses “This made entirely from gingerbread. It weighs about 80 pounds and measures 28 inches by 18 inches by 18 inches. It took a little more than two months to build. The houses feature shiplap and individual pastillage shingles. The windows are gelatin sheets, and the inside figures are made of marzipan. The trees are fondant rolled in granola, then covered in royal icing.” Russ R. Orinda, CA
