Perfectly timed to get her moving on that epic holiday gingerbread house, the White House announced today that Susan E. “Susie” Morrison is taking over for her former boss Bill Yosses, who retired this summer after seven years on the job. Morrison first stepped into the White House’s pastry department as a worker back in the early Clinton years, so today must be a particularly happy day in the kitchen with her assuming responsibility for satisfying the president’s need for “crack” pie and enormous cake slices. The White House says Morrison is also committed to the garden and its bees, so it sounds like the First Lady wins with this pick, too.
