We follow the MS Office 2007 UI Guidelines and it does not mention any large icons or custom size ribbons. So the ribbon control requires some improvements before it will be able to display layout with 72x72 icons. To make buttons with large icons having the correct layout inside the ribbon, you need to increase the height of button area by overriding the following ribbon bar’s method

      virtual INT RibbonLayout_GetGroupHeight(
            CExtRibbonButtonGroup * pGroupTBB
            ) const;
Your method should simply return a larger height.
