Gingerbread House 2017
30 November 2017 - 7 January
Gingerbread House 2017 is a different and aromatic exhibition of imaginative gingerbread houses. The theme is Boundless. It’s a competition where children, professional bakers, architects and amateurs create side by side.
We have encouraged all bakers to challenge themselves and their gingerbread dough to reinterpret what a gingerbread house can be.
The bakers, as always, have enjoyed complete freedom as to how they interpret the theme. This year, they have been advised to push the limits even further – to challenge themselves, convention and the material itself.
Competitors are grouped into four categories: architects; designers and professional bakers, up to twelve-year-olds, and everyone else who bakes.
Rahel Belatchew, architect
Frida Leijon, confectioner of the year, 2016
Pablo Londono, designer
Walter Sundling, Sweden’s youngest Masterchef, 2017
Björn Wallsten, instigator of the year’s theme: Boundless

Our hosts will introduce all groups to the gingerbread house exhibit and guide you in. There may be wait times if many groups/classes arrive at the same time. Please ask our hosts if you have any questions.
