Hansel and Gretl would have no trouble finding this house. The Guinness Book of World Records confirmed that at 39,000 square feet -- that's over 3,600 square metres -- it's the world's largest gingerbread house. The Texas A&M Traditions Club built the structure using thousands of pounds of butter, sugar, eggs and flour ... and on the outside decorated it with more than 23,000 pieces of hard candy. The sweet spot will be open to the public until December 14th. Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to a local hospital.
