I thought this year’s gingerbread White House was massive, but the Fairmont SF gingerbread house dwarfs it on a major scale! Comprised of 5,500 individual pieces of gingerbread building blocks and 850lbs of icing, it’s topped off with 425lbs of candy and eight gallons of chocolate.

The San Francisco Fairmont Hotel is definitely the place to be for a sneaky snack this holiday season. Executive chef J. W. Foster is retouching the delicious two-story cookie residence daily, making the Fairmont SF gingerbread house a mouthwatering meal in progress.
