Mount Vernon welcomes former White House pastry chef Roland Mesnier as he creates a gingerbread replica of George Washington’s home from November 12 through November 24. Visitors can watch as Mesnier constructs the masterpiece, which will include intricate details such as works of art on walls and several marzipan figures, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Vaughan Lobby, near the Shops at Mount Vernon. No admission is required to enter the Vaughan Lobby and Shops at Mount Vernon. However, please note that general admission ($15/adult, $7/child) is required to enter the estate.
The five-foot-wide and two-foot-tall gingerbread Mansion replica will be on display as part of the Christmas at Mount Vernon daytime event, (included in Estate admission) which begins on November 26.
