"I wanted to do a house with some 'wow' factors. I always enjoyed Gothic architecture and had thought that Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris would be a good challenge. This is about 100 pounds and it took about 80 hours of work total. The top of the spire measures over 2 feet long and it's about 4 feet long. We rolled out the gingerbread, cut holes for the windows and used hard tack candy for the windows. The roof is tiled with Trident Gum."
