Just when you thought that there weren’t any world records left to break, the Texans go out and make something worthwhile to record. The world’s largest gingerbread house has been constructed by a group of A&M Traditions Club members and volunteers. Weighing (or measuring) in at just over 39,000 cubic feet, this home trumps the previous records.
Now if you’re wondering what it takes to create a space this large from a bunch of ingredients you’ll be stunned to learn the following. More than 1,800 pounds of butter, 3,000 pounds of brown sugar, 7,200 eggs, and 7,200 pounds of flour were used in the process of creating this masterpiece and over 4,165 pounds of powdered sugar were used in the icing alone– which adds up to more than 36 Million calories.
The best part about this holiday record? All donations and entry fees gathered ($2 & $3 p/p) will be donated to fund St. Joseph’s Level II Trauma Center.
