8 incredible creations from Habitat For Humanity’s Gingerbread Showcase fundraiser

Share

This year’s gingerbread art will have you believing in magic.

Every year, Habitat For Humanity puts on their premier fundraiser in Downtown Victoria. In the 14th rendition of this event, people, companies and organizations test their mettle to see who can make the best Gingerbread Showcase for the fundraiser. 

Every year the event has a theme and this year it was ‘magical.’ 

When you see the creations some people have submitted you’ll feel the magic and be shocked by what they were able to create. 

There are 27 unique gingerbread creations this year, all on display at the Parkside Hotel and Spa until January 6th. 

Nothing is provided to the bakers except the base in which the creation is built. All gingerbread and other edible decor must be made by the bakers. Some contestants this year even spent over 200 hours making their creations.

People are allowed to see the gingerbread creations anytime at the Parkside Hotel and can even donate to Habitat For Humanity by tapping their credit card at each of them.

The bakers are all hoping their creations will gain the most donations and win the people’s choice award for bragging rights against their fellow competitors. 

Here’s 8 incredible gingerbread showcases this year:
