White House Pastry Chef Roland Mesnier and his assistant Marlene Roudebush

Executive Pastry Chef Roland Mesnier introduced themed gingerbread houses to the White House holidays. His first display, for the George H. W. Bush family, was an American Christmas Village, with five gingerbread houses in a wintry setting. Here he adds finishing touches while his assistant, Marlene Roudebush forms a marzipan Santa Claus.
