500-Pound Chocolate Gingerbread House Unveiled At The White House

To get you in the Gingerbread building mood as Christmas  approaches, get a load of this 500-Pound Chocolate Gingerbread House Unveiled At The White House!


The gargantuan gingerbread house that’s now taking center stage in the White House’s State Dining Room is no ordinary confection. Modeled after the White House itself and designed by Executive Pastry Chef Susan Morrison, the saccharine structure is made of a whopping 250 pounds of gingerbread, 150 pounds of chocolate and another 75 pounds of sugar and other baking ingredients.

Here are some other pics of the White House all decorated for Christmas, too.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
