This cake was created for the wedding of Lynda Bird Johnson to Capt. Charles S. Robb on December 9, 1967. They were the 15th couple to be married at the White House. The cake is pictured on display in the East Room. White House Executive Chef Henry Haller oversaw the catering for the wedding reception, which, like the ceremony itself, was held in the East Room of the White House. The cake was designed by pastry chef Clement Maggia of the Greenbriar Hotel, and decorated by pastry chef Eric Crane of the Greenbriar Hotel on the day of the wedding. Johnson was the daughter of President Lyndon B. Johnson and First Lady Lady Bird Johnson.
