The WINNERS: Pimp my Gingerbread House Competition 2013

And so, for the winners of the annual ScandiKitchen ‘Pimp My Gingerbread House’ competition…

We started with a basic kit and wanted to see what you could all do with it.

The winner of the Adult Artistic House is…



Josephine Austin.

Chosen because of the incredible detail – from each little roof tile pressed out to the lit candles on the advent wreath on the table. The simplistic beauty of her house captured us.

Kids Category 0-7

This category always splits the judges massively. We love all the houses. However, the winner was chosen: congratulations Flora, Anna and Milo – the flag on the roof is beautiful. You win the prize of ‘so many sweets your parents wont talk to us for a month’.


Kids Category 8-15

All the judges were surprised and amazed by the talent in this category. There are some wonderfully creative kids out there! However, the winner is Esme with her Elf School. Congrats, Esme – you also win a load of sweeties.

What a lovely way to use the gingerbread house kit: a place of learning for the little elves, complete with tables and chairs.

Special Creative Category

This year, we had a tie in this category. We love this category as we feel extra creative efforts must be rewarded – and thinking outside the box of a gingerbread kit too.

The prize will be split between Jens and Camilla’s Norwegian Stave Church – a genius way to make use of two kits and put them on top of each other to create something very different.


The second winner is Kelly’s Murder in the Gingerbread House – a macabre but funny story about a terrible crime in the gingerbread house, complete with white lines around the victims, police rescue and shoot-out. You can see the whole story of the house here and here.


Congratulations to both winners of this category – we’re going to work out how to split your prize so everybody’s happy!

We will contact the winners to organise their prizes – and thank you to our wonderful judges Andrew Wiggins, Lucy Keeler, Nina Balstrup, David Jørgensen and our own Moa, Bronte and Laura.

Thanks to all our wonderful contestants – we wish we could award you all with prizes because you were all brilliant. We can’t wait to do it all again next year.
