Over the course of several weeks, pastry chef Bill Yosses and his talented team created a 300-pound, edible White House replica. Check out this time-lapse of how it got made.

The (Gingerbread) White House

 

It weighs 300 pounds. It’s definitely bigger than a bread box. It’s got a working water fountain, and it’s edible.

 

It’s the Gingerbread White House.

 

We put together a time-lapse to show you how it came together — and to get you in the holiday spirit.

 

Watch the video — and if you like it, pass it on:

It’s Christmas Eve. Grab The One YOU Love. Light A Fire. Cuddle Up…..And Listen….

 

Gather Around

 

This year’s theme is ‘Gather Around’. It celebrates the stories and traditions that bring us together this special time of year. As members of one American family, we are united in a story built over the course of two centuries. The holidays serve as an opportunity to recall our Nation’s journey, reflect on our blessings, and to remember those who serve and sacrifice for our freedoms. It’s a season when each of us can do our part to care for one another.

An Itty-Bitty White House

 

The 2012 holiday décor at the White House features a 300 pound representation of the President’s’ house made entirely from edible treats.

Pastry Chef Bill Yosses and his talented team spent months planning, baking, building, and decorating the structure — which is made from more than 175 pounds of gingerbread and more than 50 pounds of chocolate.

White House Holiday Social in Pictures

Last week, the White House hosted some of our newest followers on Pinterest for a Holiday Social. This was the latest in a series of White House social events that create opportunities for people who engage with us online to attend in-person events.

 

Check out the 2012 Holiday Social in photos on the White House pinboard. And be sure to follow the White House on Pinterest.

The White House is the “People’s House.” Check out pins from people from all across the country. Use the hashtag #AtTheWH to share your visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with us.

 

 

Pinners came from near and far to take in the 2012 holiday decorations and learn about how it all came together. After touring the White House and live-pinning their photos of the decorated pine, attendees met with Chief Floral Designer Laura Dowling and participated in a DIY craft.

 

Later in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, pinners learned how Executive Pastry Chef Bill Yosses and his team created this year’s White House gingerbread house, and took part in conversations with Ellie Schafer, Director of the White House Visitors Office, and Tina Tchen, Chief of Staff to First Lady Michelle Obama.

 

Finally, the expert pinners talked to Macon Phillips, the Director of the Office of Digital Strategy, about what they’d like to see from the White House on Pinterest and shared tips on using the social network.

 

To find out about upcoming opportunities to join White House social events, follow us on TwitterFacebookGoogle+ and now, Pinterest.
