Choose any type of structure with landscaping not to exceed 12” wide x 12” high x 12” long, and all materials (except for a cardboard/wood/plastic base) must be edible! Judging will be based on the use of different edible materials, creativity, and originality; and prize ribbons will be awarded in all divisions for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places.
