It may look simple, but don’t let that fool you. This Gingerbread House looks more like an architectural model than it does an edible treat. I cannot even begin to imagine the amount of time and attention to intricate details that went into making an exceptionally charming and realistic country farmhouse.

Featured in the lobby of the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco during the holiday season of 2016, this 22 foot tall, two-story gingerbread house was built over a wooden frame. Hotel Chefs added nearly 8,000 individual pieces of gingerbread as well as hundreds of pounds of icing and candy. Because visitors (mainly children) had a tendency to sample the edible parts of the house, the hotel’s executive pastry chef, Kimberly Tighe, and her staff had to rebuild and repair parts of the house every day during holiday season. The house features a balcony, an electric train that runs in and out of the house, cookie trim, a clock, gingerbread bricks, and icing mortar.
