60 Foot Tall Gingerbread House, Yeah, You Betcha

Yep, what you see is a 60 foot tall house made of Gingerbread. Chocolate bars, nut rolls, gumdrops, candy canes, frosting and a bit of wood for extra support. This gingerbread house is on display at the Mall Of America. They claim 4,250 pounds of gingerbread and 4,750 pounds of icing and it is a world record on the books. You were able to walk through the structure while making a donation to the Saint Therese Foundation if you like.
