Guam - It's beginning to look - and smell - a lot like Christmas at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Tumon.  Hyatt executive chef Josef Budde and his staff are attempting to create the largest gingerbread house in the island's history.

He explained, "The team got together and we're kind of thinking what we could do and then the idea of a gingerbread house came. Wherever you go, it's always a lot of fun to do that and you can't stifle your creativity and basically you can put anything on there."

Staffers are using 800 pounds of royal icing and approximately 400 sheets of home baked gingerbread bricks to create the 144-square foot, 12-foot tall gingerbread house.  The edible masterpiece should be completed by tomorrow and on display at the hotel.
