BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO/WYMT) - One South Central Kentucky woman was declared the winner of the Gingerbread Baking Challenge on Food Network that aired Monday night.

Elizabeth Moore Rhodes is a glass artist from Bowling Green who has her own studio in town. She has always loved Christmas and gingerbread creations so wanted to participate in the Holiday Baking Championship: Gingerbread Showdown.

Rhodes created a small-town Kentucky Christmas parade out of gingerbread and took home the first-place prize.

She was joined by baking assistant Jennifer Mackin from Louisville.

Congrats Elizabeth!
