It took more than 120 hours of work to create the edible display.

"We wanted to do something that would represent Louisville," Jaclyn Joseph, Executive Pastry Chef for the Brown Hotel, said. "When you look at it, it's so recognizable. It's kind of like the heart of the city, so we wanted to do something that represented that."

The gingerbread sculpture is made of 70 pounds of gingerbread and 15 pounds of icing. It's a whopping 6 feet long, 3 feet high and 4 feet wide.
