The circa 1882 Floral Hall at the Red Mile was recreated by columnist Tom Eblen and his family with sugar cookie walls, clear sugar windows and a chocolate graham cracker roof. As an annual holiday project, they make an edible version of a different Lexington landmark. Past projects have included People's Bank and the Hunt-Morgan House.
