Chef Jon Lovitch, based in New York City, has recently set a new Guinness world record for the world's largest gingerbread village. Nothing says "Merry Christmas" like breaking a gingerbread related world record. This impressive edible community consists of 152 mouth-watering houses and a total of 65 candy trees.

This fantastic gingerbread village weighs over a ton, because it required over 2000 pounds of icing and 400 pounds of delicious Christmas candies to create. Lovitch's massive gingerbread village is worth a few thousand dollars due to all the ingredients and time that went into making it, but the end result is worth it. This sugar-coated community is the stuff dreams are made of.

This record-breaking candy village is definitely impressive, but likely impossible to finish eating. Stats for Record Breaking Gingerbread Communities Trending: Older & Mild
