Home Sweet Home: The World’s Largest Gingerbread House

Househappy —  December 13, 2013 — 2 Comments

Bryan, Texas is where you will find the “sweetest” home. This house (covering an area of 2,520 square feet and standing at 21 feet high) has been declared the biggest gingerbread house ever by Guinness World Records.

The house was built by the Traditions Club near Texas A&M University to help raise money for a trauma center at regional St. Joseph’s Hospital.

The sugary exterior was mounted to a wooden frame to hold it in place. To make the gingerbread panels they mixed together thousands of pounds of butter and brown sugar, over 7,000 eggs, 1,000 ounces of ginger, and more. The whole edible structure is approximately 36 million calories.

Due to the Texas sun, constant repair is required in order to keep the house from being damaged. The home is open for visitors to come check out the large confectionary creation.
