Introducing The World’s Largest Gingerbread House

Posted: December 4, 2013 by woody in Actual News

 

Straight out of Bryan, Texas, this monstrous delicious house broke the world record for largest gingerbread house just a day ago. Standing 20 feet high and composed of 39,201 cubic feet of gingerbread, the record was confirmed by Guinness officials. The qualifying factor was that the entire outside has to be edible. The spice-filled structure was made with 1,800 pounds of butter, 7,200 eggs, 225 gallons of molasses, 7,200 pounds of flour and close to 3,000 pounds of brown sugar. Combined with the massive amounts of candy, the house totals 36 million calories. According to Bill Horton, the mastermind behind this genius idea, “There’s loads of Twizzlers, loads of peppermint sticks, and spun-sugar glass work. Six-inch lollipops are all along the front, and plenty of green and red Life Savers”. He also recalls a serious problem they faced when building every kids dream house, “We’ve had a lot of bees during the day. It was covered in bees. Once we started applying a lot of the icing, we had to call a beehive specialist. Normally this time of year there’s no more bees, but I guess they can’t resist this amount of sugar”. Pah! Yea prolly dude. All in all, gotta say I’m pretty impressed. I would eat the fuck out of that thing. However, I have to add, only in America can you see that amount of food go to absolute waste. People literally dying from starvation all over the world and we’re building fucking houses out of food. Hahahaha. Classic America.
