Gingerbread House Competition 2012

The annual gingerbread house contest was back in full force this year. The theme was haunted houses. My brother and I both had the idea to do a dry ice smoke effect (which was funny). This was the first year both houses were good; I'm glad the voting was left up to attendees of the family Christmas party.

He won the over all contest by a single vote. I feel I beat him on the engineering of the dry ice effect though. No doubt the victor deserves their win.

There are a few highlights posted below of the testing, construction and finished product, and the whole photo album (with a surprising number of bald spot shots) can be found here. There are a few pictures of the destruction in the album too, but the video better captures the explosions... I'll post that when I get a chance.
