‘Pimp my gingerbread House’ is an annual event at ScandiKitchen. Take one Anna’s Gingerbread House Kit, assemble it however you want – and pimp it up with all your artistic desires. We want to see how pimped up a kit can be. Go wild, go nuts. Unleash your hidden house building talents.

Previous years we've had anything from Snow White cottage, X-Factor houses full of snow, dragons, In The Night Garden, Melodifestivalen houses and building sites and crack houses.  

Take a few pictures of your creation – then mail it to us and let us know which category you wish enter:

Under 7's (with not too much help from grown ups)

7-15 years old

Adult - for artistic talent and decorating skills

Special prize - Most genuinely pimped up, creative, crazy house and original idea (any age)

The Prizes:

Big Gift Box of Scandinavian Sweeties - so many Sweeties your parents might not talk to us for a month (both for under 7's and 7-15 categories).  

Main Adult Prize: A Christmas Hamper from Scandi Kitchen and a voucher for lunch for two

Special Prize for creative effort: Free coffee for a month (35 coffees) OR a nice Scandi Hamper (you choose which prize you prefer)

Send the photos of your creations to iloveherring@scandikitchen.co.uk by 16th December 2013. Don’t forget to tell us your category and a bit about your creation. 

By e-mailing us your photos you agree that we can publish them on our blog and website. Please do not send us your whole house, a photo will do, thank you.
