It was Lights! Camera! Action! as crews from all of Chicago’s major media outlets turned out to cover the official unveiling of a spectacular, fully-detailed gingerbread White House we arranged for Le Cordon Bleu-Chicago to create for client Museum of Science and Industry.
Over 150 pounds of sugar, 100 pounds of flour, and mind-boggling amounts chocolate, marzipan, and other sweet treats were used by the school’s Patisserie and Bakery Professor Marilyn Santos-McNabb and her students to create this wild, 8-foot-long, sprawling confectionery fantasy.
The gingerbread White House remains on display in the Main Entry Hall of the Museum of Science and Industry through January 3, 2010, as part of the Museum’s newest exhibit, The White House: A Look Inside.
