Creative bakers are invited to make their own gingerbread houses and enter them in the Nelson Star contest.

Design a sweet creation and win with the Nelson Star

The Nelson Star is hosting a Gingerbread House contest asking people to make a sweet creation, then submit a photo to show off their work.

The building blocks of the perfect gingerbread — baking cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves — are smells synonymous with the holiday season.

Add in a little creativity, some icing and a bag full of candy and there’s a contest waiting for your entry.

The Nelson Star is hosting a Gingerbread House contest asking people to create and assemble a sweet creation, then submit a photo to show off their handiwork.

“Making a gingerbread house is a wonderful family tradition,” said Star publisher Karen Bennett. “This is a great chance to get into the holiday spirit while being creative with family and friends.”

Digital photos should be uploaded under the contest tab at the Star website at nelsonstar.com

The contest is now open and closes on Friday, December 20 at 12 p.m.

A panel of judges will select the winner.

Sponsored by the Kootenay Bakery, gingerbread experts in their own right, they will be providing a gift certificate to the winning entry.
