A gingerbread doghouse and village, dedicated to Snoopy and his friends, have been crafted with 150 hours of very sweet labor. The creation is on display at the Magnolia Hotel, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Specifically, the gingerbread layout used:

  • 30 pounds of gingerbread
  • 284 pounds of frosting
  • 6 gallons of corn syrup
  • 16 pounds of butter
  • 16 pounds of brown sugar
  • 65 pounds of flour
