Same House, Different Chef







Every year the Arizona Inn creates a "Mini Inn" display for the lobby. I don't know if the house is gingerbread (or even if it is edible). Here's a quick review of 6 versions that have been on display in recent years. The top image is this year's house. A little skimpy on embellishments IMHO.

YES, the alarming orange icing is really that color - no trick of the camera! Anyone who has ever seen the Inn will describe it as more of a PINK than an ORANGE color so it is unclear why the pastry chefs went so heavy into the "Hazard Orange" color zone...   Which one do you like the best? And YES some years are definitely better than others (as you can see for yourself).

  1. I like the 4th one the best. I like the necco wafer shingles(present in some of them). I like the detail of the door and the fact that there is a man bringing luggage in which is a good representation of the use of the building.

    1. I like that one a lot, too! I love it when they include the tiny people. And the Necco wafers are fun for a gingerbread house. But I do wonder about that ORANGE icing!!!! :)
