As far as gingerbread houses go this design would make the ultimate Hansel and Gretel retirement palace.
Created by the White House pastry chef Bill Yosses for this year's Christmas celebrations, it's a 300-pound ginger bread monster that looks just like the Whitehouse.
But this is not any old gingerbread structure - it comes fitted with chocolate furniture, special photos in the windows, a christmas tree with mini sugar globes, electric lights and a mini santa complete with reindeer.
The famous Whitehouse garden is even included in the design and Michelle Obama has described Yosses' creation as "phenomenal".
Rather than just being faux-meat, Mamu is different. It's a mushroom-based meat alternative that's getting its launch in restaurants so that chefs can test its versatility. Flora Tsapovsky investigates.
