Scripps Networks Interactive-owned channels HGTV and Food Network will simulcast the holiday competition special All-Star Gingerbread Build on November 28.

Hosted by Flipping Virgins host Egypt Sherrod, the hour-long special will pit network stars against one another to create edible, life-sized gingerbread houses over a 72-hour window.

Cake Wars‘ Ron Ben-Israel and Property Brothers’ Jonathan Scott will go head-to-head against Holiday Baking Championship’s Duff Goldman and Property Brothers’ Drew Scott.

Teams will set up shop in a Los Angeles area mall and invite shoppers to view the homes and cast a vote to determine the winning abode.

The winning team will donate a US$10,000 gift card to non-profit organization Rebuilding Together, working to provide low-income homeowners and disabled veterans with critical home repairs, accessibility modifications and energy-efficient upgrades.

All-Star Gingerbread Build premieres on HGTV and Food Network on November 28 at 8 p.m. EST/PST.

“The Property Brothers bring their vast knowledge of home construction and décor while Duff and Ron lend their extraordinary baking skills to this fun-filled holiday special that will surprise our viewers,” said Kathleen Finch, chief programming, content and brand officer for Scripps Networks Interactive.
