There are gingerbread houses, and then there are gingerbread masterpieces. In my opinion, Kerry Holmes' creation, recently entered into the Ultimate Gingerbread house contest, is in the latter category.

Kerry says that she got the idea for her creation after browsing through a magazine, she thinks it may have been Coastal Living.
"It was tons of fun. I do say that it might be my favorite construction in my experience making these fun things," she said, adding, "Take a look at the other entries - they are really quite remarkable."
