Not only is the giant live tree a feature every year at the Arizona inn, but also they do a "mini" Inn. I don't know if the mini Arizona Inn is edible gingerbread but it is a sweet version of the Inn decorated with candies. It is displayed in the lobby. Some years the creator(s) add whimsical touches but this year it seems like a pretty straightforward copy. EXCEPT.... this year (just like the last few years) I wish they would tone down the icing! If only they looked more closely at the actual Inn they could see that the stucco is not orange! The exterior is pinkish orange. Jeez. Anyway, it's a fun feature to admire.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
