A tasty miniature tradition at the White House!

December 29th, 2010

Every year the White House has a “holiday” tradition that really caught our eye. Each Christmas, members of the Pastry team at the White House come together with other members of the White House staff to create this amazing holiday tradition: The White House Gingerbread House!

Everyone from White House carpenters to plumbers to electricians lend their expertise to help make this amazing creation.  The recipe calls for more than 150 pounds of gingerbread dough, which when cooked creates the foundation of the house, and 250 pounds of white chocolate to cover the gingerbread and make the “White” house!

Special features of this years house include a shadow box room view of the State Dining Room and marzipan renderings of the vegetable patch and garden – they’ve even included a marzipan replica of Bo, the Presidential family’s pet dog!

See how the White House gingerbread was made in the video below!

    Amazing! All that chocolate and ginger bread. Very detailed in all aspects. Even very much to scale. The president must be very proud of his employees. They are very talented. I wonder doe are they really busy at the White House to dedicate so much time and effort to do that kind of work? :-) Well done to all.
