It’s that time of year again…. We are super excited to launch Pimp My gingerbread House 2015.
Every year we run a great competition:
Take one basic Gingerbread house kit from ANNA’S and pimp it up to the best of your abilities. Think outside the box: be creative, be crazy, be super attentive to detail. Whatever is your strong side, put that into the little house.
When you are done, send us a picture of our house and we will put the best ones up on Instagram and Facebook and the blog during December.
We have four categories:
Adult – Beautiful: This is the main award. The most beautiful house you can make from a very basic kit of gingerbread house.
Adult – Super Creative. This is the crazy house – like the house eaten by dragons, murder scenes, brothels, discos – whatever you can do to pimp up your house to silly standards with great use of imagination.
Child – up to 7 years old. It’s okay that you Mum and Dad help out, but here we do want to see real kids efforts. We know what seven year olds can do with a ginger bread kit – we want to see kids being allowed to unleash creativity. It’s fine to add Lego men and other toys to the mix or make a gingerbread house for your favourite dolls.
Young person 8-16 – We want to see your imagination run wild here. Make the house your own.
THIS YEAR’S PRIZES:
First prize this year in category ‘beautiful’ is £50 online OR in-store voucher for ScandiKitchen, a signed copy of our cookbook and one of our fancy new mugs.
Adult – Creative – prize – A hamper full of goodies and treats plus a signed cookbook.
Children under 7 prize: Sweeties. And more Sweeties. So many sweeties your Mum will be quite annoyed with us all the way through till January.
Young person 8-16 prize: Sweeties. And more Sweeties. So many sweeties your Mum will be quite annoyed with us all the way through till January, probably.
- All entries MUST be made from a basic Gingerbread House kit. We stock the one from Anna’s, which is the preferred one, but if you use the IKEA version that is also fine (they are similar in shape and size). Basically, the basic shape of the house must be the same so we can see just how creative you can be with a pre-fab kit. Any entries not made from the similar in size and shape to the Ikea and Anna’s kit will not be accepted, sorry.
- When you submit photos, you need to state what category you are entering into.
- Only one entry per person
- If more than one person submits the same entry, the prize will be shared (if you win the lamp, you will have to fight).
- No alternative prize, no cash prizes, no exchanges.
- Entries must be received before 18th December 2014 at noon to email@example.com
- Employees of ScandiKitchen ltd not eligible to enter (No, Rebekka, you can’t…)
- Winners will be picked by a jury of lovely people (most likely a selection of our customers – we usually pick 5 judges from Twitter to help us out).
- The judges decisions are final.
- Prizes can be sent to UK address only.
Send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org before 18th December at noon to enter the competition. We look forward to seeing your creations.

WIN a signed copy of Wolf Winter by Cecilia Ekback
Cecilia Ekback’s book Wolf Winter has been getting a lot of press since it was published – and rightly so: It’s a beautiful novel.
Buy the book here
Swedish Lapland, 1717. Maija, her husband Paavo and her daughters Frederika and Dorotea arrive from their native Finland, hoping to forget the traumas of their past and put down new roots in this harsh but beautiful land. Above them looms Blackåsen, a mountain whose foreboding presence looms over the valley and whose dark history seems to haunt the lives of those who live in its shadow.
While herding the family’s goats on the mountain, Frederika happens upon the mutilated body of one of their neighbors, Eriksson. The death is dismissed as a wolf attack, but Maija feels certain that the wounds could only have been inflicted by another man. Compelled to investigate despite her neighbors’ strange disinterest in the death and the fate of Eriksson’s widow, Maija is drawn into the dark history of tragedies and betrayals that have taken place on Blackåsen. Young Frederika finds herself pulled towards the mountain as well, feeling something none of the adults around her seem to notice.
Cecilia was a customer of ours for many years before she moved to Canada – and we’re are immensely proud of her achievements with her first book. She has given us a signed copy of her book to give away to one of you guys.
If you want to be in with a chance of winning, just answer this easy question:
