WATCH: Bill Yosses Builds A Gingerbread White House In One-And-A-Half Minutes
Yesterday, the White House released this video of the long, labor-intensive, weeks-long process of building the traditional Executive Mansion gingerbread replica — all helpfully condensed to one-and-a-half minutes. A previous interview with executive pastry chef Bill Yosses revealed that the house is gray, due to the speckled bread used to emulate the original sandstone exterior of the White House (which became white after receiving a coat of paint in 1798 to protect the masonry). Similarly, the candy version of Bo the Dog is ten times his normal height to emulate his previous size as a mutant Portuguese Water Dog, long before the late Sen. Ted Kennedy shrank him with gamma rays and gave him to Barack Obama. One of these stories is false, but the video below is a very true documentary of the gingerbread mansion-building, as well as proof that the Green Room is the tastiest room.
