Amazing Gingerbread Houses from Canadaland’s National 2012 Showcase

Among Canada’s many monumental achievements — world peace, maple syrup, Drake, Trivial Pursuit and Wayne Gretzky, to name a few — these awesome gingerbread houses make the list. The creations were entered for a Canada’s National Gingerbread Showcase 2012 that took place at the Inn at Laurel Point in Victoria, B.C.

The venue collaborated with Habitat for Humanity to raise money for the charity and invited bakers all around the country to partake in the baking extravaganza. The competition requires that submissions be made entirely of edible ingredients and are featured on Laurel Point’s Facebook page. According to the site, the baker whose gingerbread masterpiece receives the most “Likes” will win a brunch for two at the AURA Waterfront Restaurant, the final count will be taken on January 1st, 2013.
