Gingerbread MINI – Our Top Bakers Announced!

We knew that making festive gingerbread MINI would be a great way to spend time together during the holiday season, and it seems like you guys agreed! Here’s a selection of some of the finest entries we had — the gooier, sweeter and shinier the better. Leave those thoughts of salad and self-discipline behind, and relive that sweet, festive waft of rising gingerbread one last time. Until next year, that is!

These labours of love deserve some heavyweight rewards. Our three winners will be receiving goodie bags filled with MINI Lifestyle shop treats, including a Mini Cooper Miniature, bulldog USB stick, MINI mousepad and MINI drink bottle, and our overall winner will get an exclusive Artist's Crowd Wall Calendar too. So, without further ado ...

Mollie Budiansky scoops our first prize

Our best in show goes to Molly Budiansky for her irresistible MINI family. Adorned with jellybean wing mirrors, Oreo tires and sugar-glass windows, these wheels are way too good to eat! The MINI Roadster's even still sporting some camouflage.

Jordan Dennis

Jordan Dennis scoops up a prize for his seriously smooth and streamlined MINI Hatch and MINI Coupé combo.

Harrison Aiko

Prize winner Harrison Aiko’s majestic pink MINI look so at home in this festive scene. Bonus points for the gingerbread tree and red-letter dates on the license plates!

If your own gingerbread MINI hasn’t made an appearance yet, there’s still hope – check out our runners’ up gallery for more sweet treats. All our runners up will get a MINI Hatch Miniature to keep that good cheer flowing into the New Year and beyond!
