This year’s gingerbread contest took the competition to a whole new level! As last year’s winners, Eric and I got to choose this year’s theme. We chose “A Science Fiction Christmas” and the results were truly out of this world! Below are the three entries with detailed photos. We need you to help us determine the winner by viewing the entries and then voting for your favorite at the end. We’d also love it if you’d share in the comments why it was your favorite. Voting will be open until December 26, 2011 at 6pm Pacific time. Thanks so much!
House #1 Santa’s Workshop
All fun loving little boys and girls want a robot, jet plane, spaceship or ray gun to play with. The elves have been very busy this year fulfilling all of Santa’s orders.
Check out the mortar work on the sides of Santa’s workshop using Chex and color coordinated frosting.
Each window has a black licorice sill with beautiful candy coated pretzel sticks.
They don’t need gutters in the North Pole, so have pretzels and gingerbread men instead.

Don’t you want a gumdrop robot of your very own?
House #2 Stargate SG-1 Saves the Penguins
The SG-1 team has discovered that Santa Claus does exist, unfortunately he’s really a Goa’uld enslaving the native penguin inhabitants of another world. The team is taking on his minion gingerbread men and snowmen to free the penguins and return the planet to their ownership.
The D.H.D and Stargate are made of gingerbread with gumdrop chevrons and a melted jolly rancher event horizon.

These gummi Coke bottles won’t be safe for long.
Several bottles have already been caught in the spaceship’s melted jolly rancher tractor beam.
