How many Necco wafers does it take to create a roof on a Swiss chalet? How much green frosting to create a Forest of Pine trees? And how much caramelized sugar to make a whole cathedral of windows? Hours of drawing and hours of planning are needed to create these masterpieces. Come and see who won Best Decoration, Kids Choice, Most Creative and Best in Show.
