1600 Pennsylvania Avenue never looked so … delicious.

From the White House blog:

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 modified gingerbread and over 50 pounds of chocolate. Instead of a white chocolate facade as in years past, Chef Yosses used a combination of wheat, rye, and white-flour to create the gingerbread, which perfectly matches the color of the house prior to 1798, when it was first painted white.
