Not just gingerbread houses...

Today I came across this amazing video that shows the progressive build of a 17-ft. gingerbread tree at Disney's Contemporary Resort in Orlando, FL. The tree is made up of only 6 ingredients, but check out the quantities:

1,050 pounds of honey
800 pounds of flour
600 pounds of powdered sugar
35 pounds of spices
600 pounds of chocolate
180 pounds of apricot glaze

As someone who enjoys building gingerbread houses, but to put it nicely, lacks the architectural prowess it might take to construct these seasonal builds, I'm in awe of this production. Check out the time lapse video below (and if this doesn't put you in the Christmas spirit, I don't know what will).
