The Gingerbread White House

December 22, 2009 | 2:39

Each year, the White House Pastry Team comes together with other members of the White House staff to work on a favorite holiday tradition: The White House Gingerbread House. Everyone from White House carpenters to plumbers to electricians lend their expertise to help make this project a success. The recipe called for more than 150 pounds of gingerbread dough and 250 lbs of white chocolate. Special features of this year's gingerbread house include a shadow box view of the State Dining Room and marzipan renderings of the vegetable garden and our favorite four-pawed friend, Bo.
