Newcastle's FIRST Gingerbread House Competition

It's been 6 months (or more) since Cakebook, and I've decided it's time to do something else food related....I've built The Bridge Hotel (Cakebook 2010), Bamburgh Castle (Cakebook 2011) and St Mary's Axe aka The Gherkin (Cakebook 2012).

And now I want to get everyone building Gingerbread Houses....

Yes - I'm that bloody woman tweeting and retweeting about The Gingerbread House Challenge

Open to EVERYONE, it's a chance to build and decorate a house made of Gingerbread (which could be a castle, a cottage, a tent a bungalow or even a shed!!)

There is an entry fee, and profits from the event will be donated to The Sick Children's Trust

And there is a limited cakeboard size so it won't get as big as cakebook - but it should be good fun to take part in and see...

Gingerbread Houses will be brought together to Newcastle City Library on Sunday 2nd December, 2.30-5pm where they will be judged and prizes awarded to the best looking house on the street!

More information is available on the website
Or follow @GingerbreadHC on twitter or find out more on Gingerbread House Challenge on facebook

I hope my fellow cakebook builders will support the event, I know a few regular cakebookers have already signed up.

To take part - gingerbread house builders need to book their space on Gingerbread Street (in advance of the event) - more information on the website

We still need people to help on the day, donate prizes and book their plots on the street!

Any questions about the event or the competition - please contact Lisa Vincent:
