World’s Largest Gingerbread Village: Guinness World Record Bid Part II



You read correctly – Gingerbread Village.  Chef Jon Lovitch intends to surpass last year’s efforts, exhibited at the New York Hall of Science.  Titled “Gingerbread Lane”, Lovitch’s creation contains nine-hundred individual gingerbread buildings covering 480 square feet with the tallest structure reaching seven feet high.  The “Lane” is completely hand-made and, including the icing and other candy garnishes, weighs over 5,000 lbs.
