Freestyle Competition Gingerbread House Entry (Adults)


Entry to the freestyle category of Safe in Sussex’s Gingerbread House Competition 2022.

Let your imagination go wild in this category where you get to design and build your very own gingerbread house. The only rule is there are no rules!

It can be whatever you want it to be. It doesn’t even have to be a house, it can be a car, boat, plane, castle or crown. It can even have lights and moving parts.

Ther bottom line is we want to see as much creativity as possible.


Our freestyle competition gingerbread house category is your chance to shine. You’ll be able to create literally whatever you want out of gingerbread. Go big, go bold, go broke.

Think outside the box and try your hand at something gravity defying, something moving or something iconic. Brighton Pavilion or Buckingham Palace anyone?!
