Gingerbread White House

Each year, White House chiefs create a replica of the President's home in gingerbread. Displayed in the State Dining Room, the house took more than two months to make, utilized 350 pounds of white chocolate and 150 sheets of gingerbread. The White House 2008 holiday theme is "A Red, White and Blue Christmas." This year, gingerbread White House features replicas of the Bush family pets sitting in a rooftop sleigh and cookies resembling the U.S. Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps. More than 60,000 visitors are expected to tour the holiday decorations. If the holiday spirit or Martha Stewart aspirations move you, try making your own gingerbread White House.
