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!

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 ...
