Holy. Sweet. Shizz!
We'll give you two guesses as to where this confection monstrosity resides, but you only need one because you're totally right, it IS Texas!
The Traditions Club and St. Joseph Health System of Bryan, Texas, started working LAST YEAR on this ginormous house! They wanted to earn the Guinness World Record for the World's Largest Gingerbread House — and 35,823,400 calories later, the team has succeeded!
The whole thing is 60 feet by 42 feet and measures up to 20 feet tall, which kicked the ass of the reigning gingerbread giant, built at the Mall of America.
We understand why they had to do it this way, but it still feels like cheating a little bit — the house started as a wood base, and they built on TOP of it before the food-version was structurally sound. They used 1,800 pounds of butter (which is a normal Tuesday for Paula Deen), 7,200 eggs, 3,000 pounds of sugar, 7,200 pounds of flour!
They even used more than 22,000 pieces on the house's facade after construction!
After their Guinness approval, visitors could tour the house and get their photos with Santa for a small fee — which went to the St. Joseph’s Level II Trauma Center. We're told the house was to come down on Dec. 14, which seems super early for the season and a little bullshizz, but we haven't heard whether or not it's actually been removed yet or not.
Either way, we're hungry now!
