在聖誕節來臨前夕,得克薩斯州的面包師烤制並堆砌出巨大的姜餅屋,打破了吉尼斯世界紀錄,也爲節日增添了甜蜜的氣氛。

面包師將黃油、紅糖、普通面粉、姜粉和其他作料混合後烘烤成塊,然後將這些香噴噴的可食用面包塊與糖衣和糖果壹起安裝到木架上,建造成巨型姜餅屋。爲了讓姜餅能更好地面對惡劣天氣,面包師盡可能減少黃油和小蘇打用量。到目前爲止,它已經受過得克薩斯陽光和幾次風暴的考驗。

這座姜餅屋的覆蓋面積達2520平方英尺(約234平方米),大小接近壹個網球場,高21英尺(約6.4米)。吉尼斯世界紀錄已經宣布這是目前世界上最大的姜餅屋。

Holiday cheer in Texas has become even sweeter thanks to a giant gingerbread house that has broken a world record for confectionary construction.

Coming in at 35.8 million calories and covering an area of 2520 square feet, or nearly the size of a tennis court, the 21-foot high gingerbread house in Bryan, Texas, 90 miles northwest of Houston, has been declared the biggest ever by Guinness World Records.

The bakers tried to cut back on the butter and baking soda as much as possible to help the gingerbread better stand up to the weather日本料理.

The edible and aromatic panels, icing and candy were mounted over the wooden frame and have so far stood up to the Texas sun as well as a few storms.

"One problem we did not anticipate was bees on warm days," Horton said. "They have been coming over, getting so much sugar and stumbling around like they are drunk. But no one has gotten stung
