Gingerbread House 2019

Gingerbread House 2019 is a fragrant exhibition of imaginative gingerbread houses. It is also a competition in which children, young people, adults, amateurs and professionals build and create side by side.

This year’s theme: Hot

This year, ArkDes encourages all gingerbread house bakers to bake what you think is HOT. What do you think of when you hear that word? Do you think of hot trends or tropical countries? Forest fires or sunny beaches?

Members of this year's jury:

Frida Leijon, Pastry Chef

Elsa Billgren, television host & blogger

Svante Öquist, journalist & blogger

Tor Lindstrand,  Architekt
