INTENSE GINGERBREAD HOUSES

Get ready to feel inferior about your average, regular gingerbread house.
  1. Gingerbread Abbey
    Last year, Martha Stewart made a replica of Masterpiece's Downton Abbey in gingerbread form. Even Mrs. Patmore was impressed. http://to.pbs.org/21OORlw
  2. White House Gingerbread House
    You don't want to compete against the White House pastry chef. This 500-pound dark-chocolate house is a "whopping 250 pounds of gingerbread, 150 pounds of chocolate and another 75 pounds of sugar and other baking ingredients." http://huff.to/1TAOYLv
  3. Everything's Bigger in Texas
    Texas set a Guinness World Record in 2013 with a 40K cubic feet gingerbread house in the town of College Station. http://strib.mn/1REzcAR
  4. San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel
    It is 22 feet high and 23 feet wide, and features thousands of home-baked gingerbread bricks and more than a ton of royal icing and candy décor. http://bit.ly/1M33vK9
