On December 1, the Epilepsy Foundation of San Diego County celebrated Gingerbread City 2009, The Greatest Stories Ever Told, at a spectacular holiday Gala for charity featuring celebrity chefs and the largest recognized gingerbread structure competition on the West Coast, showcasing creations by San Diego's leading chefs, artists and designers.  We were honored to be invited back to participate for a second year.  We named our structure "Fondant the Yellow Brick Road."  Come visit There's a Newf in My Soup! for more photos of our Land of Oz and photos of the winning structures.  It was an amazing and enchanting evening.
