Learn How to Build a Gingerbread House with a Guinness World Record Holder

HOUSTON – Jon Lovitch starts baking gingerbread every year around mid-December for the following year’s gingerbread village.

It is this kind of dedication that means his Guinness World Record for “largest entirely edible gingerbread village” remains, to this day, unbroken. The secret could be his baking or maybe it is in the homemade frosting, “insert sot for frosting recipe”

Whatever the case, his current display of gingerbread houses at the Houston farmers Market, ‘Gingerbread Lane,’ is impressive! Watch more in the video above or watch on YouTube here.

You can wander through Gingerbread Lane at the Houston Farmers Market from now until January 14, 2024. And, if you feel inspired, Jon is teaching Gingerbread House building workshops that are a lot of fun for the whole family! Learn from the master builder - of gingerbread houses.
