Not every gingerbread house has to be a mansion. Perhaps it’s even more appropriate to make a ski chalet, as the Egan family members did for the Salisbury, Conn., gingerbread competition. Photo submitted

Gingerbread Houses That Are Adorable and Earnest

Gingerbread season is over for now, but the memories and calories linger on. Perhaps the happiest use for these delicious cookies — for those of us who worry about gingerbread overload on our hips — is the decorative gingerbreadhouse that can be admired but must not be eaten.

The town of Kent, Conn., wrapped up its gingerbread festival at the end of December. For photos and a list of the winning entries, go to www.kentctgingerbreadfest.com.

Salisbury, Conn., hosted a smaller-scale gingerbread house competition through its recreation commission. The entries were adorable and earnest. The following prizes were awarded:

• First place: Anra Armillo and Molly Gochman for The Snowy House

• Second place: Aeven, Oona Mascavage and Nana, for The Gingerbread Village

• Third place: Emily, Aman and Carmela Egan for Egans A-Frames.
