Forget the world’s largest gingerbread house. We have all heard the phrase “It takes a village” and a gingerbread village is exactly what we have here. It is on display at Texas A&M University. Let’s all crash the party. Gingerbread houses for everyone.
The world’s largest gingerbread village was created by New York Chef Jon Lovitch. This village consists of 152 houses and 65 trees and weighs over 1.5 tons. It is made up of 500 pounds of gingerbread, 400 pounds of candy and 2,240 pounds of icing. That’s enough to give everyone who even looks at it a stomach ache.
It cost a few thousand dollars to complete, but it is now in the Guinness Book of World Records, so it was well worth it. It is too neat to eat, and anyway where would you start?
