Ginger Betty vies for gingerbread house prize

Beth Veneto, the owner of Ginger Betty’s Bakery in Quincy, has high hopes as she heads into her 18th year in the 19th annual Gingerbread House Competition in Boston.

Having won Best in Show awards in the past for her Wizard of Oz house, her Christmas in Iraq design, and her Charlie and the Chocolate Factory set-up, and with several children’s choice awards under her belt, this year’s 4 -foot by 4-foot creation could be another winner.
