Over-the-Top Gingerbread Houses
Location: The Grove Park Inn & Spa's 2009 Gingerbread Competition (Asheville, NC)
Carolina Montoya and husband Fernado Puga spent 302 hours over the course of two months to create their gingerbread house. The traditionally-designed structure featured President Barack Obama, who appeared to be climbing out the window and up onto the chimney with a bag full of toys. Montoya and Puga's all-edible entry was constructed of gingerbread, fondant, gum paste, coconut, Rice Krispies cereal and breath strips for window panes.
