Gigantic gingerbread! A 12 foot gingerbread house!

I’m a huge cake fan – I can eat it anytime, and most any way.  But it’ll take an awful big glass of milk to wash down this gigantic gingerbread house, created by French pastry chef Jean Francois Houdré – take a look:

 

12 foot gingerbread houseThis colossal work of art is indeed 12 feet tall,  and was inspired by the chateaus of the Southwest of France.  The house features 30 rooms,  20 circular towers, and has it’s own surrounding village.  Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention the working train that runs around this sweet chateau.  Want to know what it takes to make something like this?  Okay, I’ll tell ya:  60 pounds of flour, 40 pounds of molasses, 70 pounds of gingerbread, and 100 pounds of christmas candy!  Whoo, talk about a sugar rush!  Anybody want to take on the challenge and try to create one of these?  If so, I just might be willing to volunteer to help devour it!
