Giant gingerbread house on display at Overton Hotel

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A giant Christmas delight is available for everyone to see this holiday season - an 8-foot tall 6-foot long candy-covered house made of gingerbread.

So what does it take to build a Christmas delight on this scale?

60 pounds of icing, 72 pounds of brown sugar, 90 pounds of butter, 369 eggs, almost 6 gallons of molasses and 3 cups of cinnamon.

Chef Patrick Tarantino, who made this creation, invites the public to come by, take a look and donate to the children at Texas Boys Ranch.

This over-the-top gingerbread house is on display at the Overton Hotel.
