Thank you to all who participated!
We appreciate everyone who helped us celebrate the Great Preservation Holiday Bake-off by cooking up and decorating their favorite New York landmarks.
The overall winner, Bill Schutz of Creative Cakes made a 3-foot-tall replica of the landmark U.S. Customs House in Lower Manhattan, was submitted by Friends of the Upper East Side.
Thanks also to the panel of experts who made the final decision: baker Fany Gerson; Eric Haugen, chef at the Lambs Club; and architects Liz Diller and Pamela Jerome.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday season and keep baking!

We will now team up with other New York preservation groups to crown the best building baker. Winners from preservation non-profits across the City and State will go head-to-head. This panel of experts will make the final decision: baker Fany Gerson; Eric Haugen, chef at the Lambs Club; and architects Liz Diller and Pamela Jerome. The ultimate prize is having fun, and sharing your love of New York’s amazing buildings.
We will announce the overall winner on December 16.
