my entry for the 2012 Gingerbread City. The theme this year was "Myths and Legends". This was 800 hours of work. It had over 60 pounds of molded chocolates, and I made all the molds. It weighted almost 200 pounds. I took 2nd place but won the People's Choice. It took 8 batches of gingerbread to make the palace. The fish were made of gumpaste and the reef was chocolate, gumpaste, fondant, chineese noodles, and pasta.
