Donations by visitors go to fight juvenile type 1 diabetes. The theme was Once Upon A Time and featured storybook characters and settings. There is enough candy decorating the sheets of gingerbread on this castle to stock a candy store. Truly magical. Can you imagine the number of hours of patient construction to make this? Below are some details of the Alice In Wonderland tableau. I think most of the characters are made of marzipan.
