World's Largest Gingerbread House.

Gingerbread artist Roger Pelcher built the world's largest gingerbread house at Mall of America. How large? Here's some relevant statistics:

  • The gingerbread house has 1,496 square feet (larger than my house!)
  • Built from 14,250 pounds of gingerbread and 4,750 pounds of icing
  • It took approximately 1,700 work-hours in nine days to build.
  • Embellishments include: 1,800 Hershey's chocolate bars; 2,800 pearsons nut rolls; 1,200 feet of Twizzlers; 100 pounds of Tootsie Rolls; 300 pounds of DOTS; 100 12" Whirly Pops; and thousands of other candies.

Whats wrong with you guys. Yeah it would be awesome to see a STRUCTURAL gingerbread house. But this is just as hard to build. Your disappointed, your one of those critics that don't know anything, a writer, not an acual builder. I'l like to see you do this. You won't even last a second, won't even know what to make the door out of. So keep your comments to yourself....psh disappointed, I should smack you across the face for saying that.
