The largest edible gingerbread house in Scotland has been unveiled to the public.
It was created by a team of expert pastry chefs at Perthshire’s Gleneagles Hotel, who spent 120 hours baking and building the delicious structure.
Measuring in at 1.6m wide, 2.1m high and 1.3m in depth, the house is made up of 100kg of gingerbread, 60kg of royal icing, 10kg of chocolate ‘pebbles’ and 3kg of ‘hundreds and thousands’.
The house also features an intricate stained glass window made of sugar, flower beds made of chocolate shavings and liquorice sweets.
The log store can be found filled with chocolate yule logs, the chimney stack and window box has been built from chocolate pebbles and snow made of royal icing.
The finishing touch is the Christmas wreath made of macarons and candy canes hung on the front door.
The gingerbread house can be found in the Gleneagles Hotel lobby and will be on display until Friday, January 3 2020.
