Video: Building the 300-pound, edible Gingerbread White House for 2013

The Resort at Squaw Creek has a memorable Gingerbread Village at Squaw Valley. The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe has a Gingerbread workshop, where families convene to experience the magic of creating a personalized gingerbread house under the expert tutelage of a Ritz-Carlton pastry chef.

But the granddaddy of Gingerbread Houses is at the White House in Washington, D.C.

“As part of White House holiday tradition, the State Dining Room is home to the famous gingerbread house,” according to the White House. “Over the course of several weeks, Pastry Chef Bill Yosses and his talented team created a 300-pound, edible White House replica. This year’s creation features a mini Bo and Sunny sitting on the front steps of the house lit from within, and a functioning replica of the North Lawn fountain.”
