Bringin' down the houseby Nikki Tundel, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — So you built the world's largest gingerbread house. You covered it with 4,700 pounds of icing, 1,200 feet of licorice and 1,800 chocolate bars. And you put it on display at the Mall of America for the holiday season.
What do you do with the thing after all the pictures are taken and the officials from the Guinness Book of World Records go home?
Apparently, you call Mr. Clean and turn the demolition of the candy cottage into a public relations extravaganza.
