It encompasses a staggering 1,496 square feet and is made of over 14,000 pounds of gingerbread and 4,750 pounds of frosting. Created by gingerbread artist and current World Record holder Roger Pelcher, the house took 1,700 hours to construct and was displayed at the Mall of America in 2006.

British food artist Prudence Emma Staite is best known for her chocolate interiors, but for a special exhibit at the Museum of London in 2007, she decided to try her hand at pizza dough. What resulted was an incredible replica of the Roman Colosseum, along with a life-size dough sculpture of Pope Benedict XVI. The total amount of dough used for these projects could make 500 average-sized pizzas.
