This is not your Grandma’s gingerbread house!

The Guinness Book of World Records team has verified the record-breaking 39,202 cubic-foot structure. The previous record holder was 36,000 cubic feet and was built inside the Mall of America, in Bloomington, Minn.

The house in Bryan, TX is 65 feet by 45 feet. The builders actually built it an inch bigger than expected, pushing it over just a tad more. This one scored extra points with the Guinness people for being built outside in the elements, and in Texas no less.

Built by the Texas A&M Traditions Club, the house took nearly a month to build.

And what does it take to build the worlds largest gingerbread house?  It was constructed using 1,800 pounds of butter, 7,200 eggs, 7,200 pounds of flour and close to 3,000 pounds of brown sugar. Add to this the 22,000 piece of candy that are attached to it.

Just imagine if you could take a bite?
