The structures had to be 75% gingerbread at a minimum. The winners will be displayed at the hotel throughout the holiday season, but if you can’t make it there to see these amazing creations, check out this gallery courtesy of Martha Stewart Living.

In addition to adult competitors, there were three categories for kids,  Teen (13- to 17-year-olds), Youth (9- to 12-year-olds), and Child (5- to 8-year-olds). Check out the winner in the Child category! Can you believe a little kid pulled that off?  I had trouble making a paper chain when I was that age.

This amazing piano was only good enough for second place in the 9-12 category. Wait until you see who won.
