Cook It Allergy Free Gingerbread House Contest-Vote Now!

Gluten Free Gingerbread House Contest

2 UPDATEs: 1) VOTING FOR THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED. ANY VOTES RECEIVED AFTER THE PUBLISHING OF THE UPDATE WILL NOT BE COUNTED…2) THE BAKERS HAVE BEEN MATCHED WITH THIER HOUSES BELOW!!!

I had planned on having this post ready to go live on Friday Morning. Life did not go as planned…or really how we would have ever hoped.

Instead I was in the hospital praying for my sister’s life. Literally. I have not been able to focus on anything else while she has been in the ICU. Family is first. My sister is my best friend.  Blog happenings have had to wait.

Luckily, my sister has crossed over from the scary side, and we are now just focusing on making her better. And since this hospital has free wi-fi (it better, considering it is one of the top in the country), I am finally getting this contest rolling.

We have had some amazing entries. Everyone has told me what fun they have had while building their creations. Wonderful memories have been made. Too much candy has been eaten.  Many messes have covered counters. Sugar highs are just finally fading.  And now… it is finally time to unveil our BEAUTIFUL entries and see who will win this iPod Touch and a free download of my Cook It Allergy Free iPhone App!!

I am listing our contestants here, but will not match my busy little bakers with their houses until the last day of the contest, when the winner is announced (this is in the spirit of trying to keep the voting fair).  Instead, it will be the job of our contestants to help convince you to vote for them.  They may blog, or tweet, or facebook, or email about their houses to get the word out. However they do it, it is still up to you – all of my loyal readers -to vote, by number, for your favorite one. I will list the rules for voting below.
