It's Gingerbread To Me

There is no place like home there is no place like home, well .... except the fabulous Marriott's Desert Ridge Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, especially when you have over 2,000 of your favorite family or favorite acquaintances  staying there with you over a long weekend. This past weekend has to be one of my favorite's of the year. As I attend the Grand Canyon Baha'i Conference every year I am able. 
Along with the conference the Hotel designs and assembles a huge Gingerbread display complete with a working train! This year was no exception. This years theme is the classic story of "The Wizard of Oz. Take a look at what Kansas looks like in gingerbread!
The cyclone hits the town 
 
  and the house flies up into the air and goes down right over the witch
The village has several tiny houses beyond the yellow brick road
 There is a huge castle
and several sweet buildings
                                    lots of farm houses....                                      
  and corn fields
The witches castle wear the flying monkey's dwell

The vibrant poppy fields....
And the most impressive Emerald City!

Kansas has never looked sweeter!
Thank you for visiting and, let me know what your thoughts are of the sweet city that the pastry chefs at this beautiful resort have created, I would love to read your comments!
And always remember There is no place like home!
