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.

  3. On December 14, 2010 Kathy said

    I vote for #7 because she made the best gingerbread creation of all….

  4. On December 15, 2010 Robin Stocker said

    I’m voting for no.14 today because of its impressionist interpretation of a village. Monet beware!

  5. On December 15, 2010 Anne said

    Number 9 is awesome..

  6. On December 15, 2010 Kati said

    Number 10!!

  7. On December 15, 2010 Ruthie said

  10. On December 15, 2010 Ruth Oberg said

    #3 because they are sooooo excited and hoping that they will win!

  11. On December 15, 2010 Laurel said

    No. 10 is absolutely gorgeous I want to live there; but no. 3 is so adorable it makes you think of the old world and Hansel and Gretel. What a dilemma! I think no.3 because no one seems to be giving it as much love as it deserves.

  12. On December 15, 2010 Susan said

    certainly deserves to win..saw Charlie Brown and gang creation in person and it looks great!!
    #7

  13. On December 15, 2010 Deb said

    Looooove Charlie Brown…#7

  14. On December 15, 2010 NA said

    You know, this is really a hard decision. Every time I look at these I see something new and wish I could vote for more than one. I love #7 best, but #9 is lovely, too, and 12 is so realistic. Then there’s the obvious joy of the children in their creations. Decisions, decisions!!

    For future, please have a section for the kids and one for the adults. The difference in how a child sees a gingerbread house creation vs. an adult is significant and shows in the end result.

    Besides, I’d really really like to vote in more than one category! ;-)

  15. On December 15, 2010 sandra said
