Gingerbread House Constructed in the Fairmont San Francisco

ginger-1The largest gingerbread house in the world has just been constructed in the lobby of the Fairmont in San Francisco. The two-storied house is twenty-two feet high and ten-and-a-half feet deep. It is constructed of 5,500 pieces of gingerbread, 850 pounds of icing, 400 pounds of candy and eight gallons of chocolate. The house is big enough to be lived in (and, possibly, to live on). It features a number of rooms, including one in which children can write their letters to Santa.

The tradition originated in 2008, when Tom Klein became the regional vice president and general manager at Fairmont. He wanted something that would “keep everybody’s five senses alive,” so his staff built a tabletop gingerbread village, completed with a little chugging engine. He wanted something bigger and better for the following year, and so in 2009 they built a gingerbread house that filled the doorway of the lobby. This year’s house is even larger, and features all sorts of impressive touches, like the smoking chimney. The house is open to all visitors throughout the holiday season.
