VIRTUAL Gingerbread House Competition

​Annual ​Gingerbread House Competition - VIRTUAL CONTEST 2020!

Gingerbread House Competition

RUN, RUN, RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN…to the Cochrane Kitchen Boutique location for your FREE Gingerbread House Kit to enter our Virtual Gingerbread House Competition!

This year's Annual Kitchen Boutique Gingerbread House Competition will look a little different. Usually it is part of Cochrane’s Light Up Celebration but sadly, this year the event has been cancelled. We couldn’t bring ourselves to cancel our gingerbread competition as it's such a fun event that showcases the creative minds of people and kids of all ages in the Cochrane community. So this year our gingerbread competition is going VIRTUAL!!!

We will be giving away 48 Gingerbread House Kits to all 48 competitors - complete with 2 different icing decoration packs - all together valued at over $25/kit!

The first 48 people to pick up kits from our Cochrane store, starting Friday, October 16th at 10am will be entered into the competition. There will be no holds on any kits, this is on a first-picked-up basis. Only 1 kit will be given out to an adult (18+ years or older) per household as they will need to sign out the kit.  Please only pick one up if you genuinely plan on participating. We understand personal circumstances can come up, which is why we have given 6+ weeks for you to complete your creation. Help us make this a memorable contest!!!
