Move over Mary Berry... Eggs-pert bakers have created the ultimate showstopper with this recreation of a famous country house made entirely from gingerbread.<br />
<br />
Culinary wizards from Biscuiteers spent more than 500 hours hand-sculpting an intricate 6ft tall model of grand Waddesdon Manor.<br />
<br />
The incredible model was made from 240 eggs and 216kgs of icing, and recreates in meticulous detail some of the manor's most opulent of its 45 rooms.<br />
<br />
London-based Biscuiteers spent over a year planning the amazing construction before two of their most senior bakers began the complex build process in September.<br />
<br />
One of the rooms recreated in the model, the white Portico Room, once hosted Winston Churchill who chose it because it had a balcony for him to smoke his cigars from.
