Gingerbread house 2016
1 December 2016 - 8 January 2017
The theme for this year's exhibition of gingerbread houses is secrets at home. Visit ArkDes to explore a unique and sweet-smelling exhibition of imaginative gingerbread houses.
In the nooks and crannies of the houses, we find reflected our most personal and uncompromising home secrets. All the bakers were encouraged to translate their innermost secrets and private ideas of home into design using gingerbread dough.
