Fifth Annual Gingerbread House Contest

Each year, Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel holds an exciting gingerbread house competition set to a whimsical Christmas story theme.

The gingerbread house theme for 2013 takes inspiration from the movie, “The Polar Express,” where a young boy boards a powerful and magical train to visit Santa Claus in the North Pole.

For the second year in a row, Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel will partner with Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts to give students a chance to creatively showcase their talents and win a monetary scholarship donation to their Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts tuition and/or supplies. Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts students are challenged to create gingerbread houses constructed and composed completely of edible materials. They will be judged in overall appearance, originality, creativity, difficulty, precision and consistency of theme. Prizes will be awarded to the top three competitors.

See them for yourself as these elaborately decorated, edible creations are displayed in the hotel's Park Lounge throughout the holiday season!
Festive holiday décor and the gingerbread houses will be on display from November 29 – December 31, 2013.
