The competition is open to both amateur and professional bakers. The public can vote with their dollars by donating to Habitat for Humanity and then casting their vote for their favorite gingerbread house. The competition ends at the beginning of January but the submissions featured so far are frankly stunning.

What makes these entries even more astounding is that the rules of this competition stipulate that all parts of the house must be made of 100 percent edible ingredients, which must be tough break for all those bakers who are used to using only partially digestible ingredients.

If you want to get in on the voting action you can head over to the hotel's Facebook page and drop likes on your favorite entries. The winner get's a free brunch at the hotel and the warm fuzzy feeling that can only come from being validated on the internet by complete strangers.
