City Hall Christmas 1: Bake Off
The "holiday" tree decorated with origami peace cranes is gracing the second floor of San Francisco City Hall again...
...and down the hall on Wednesday afternoon there was the Third Annual Board of Supervisors Holiday Treat Throwdown...
...where a trio of celebrity judges awarded prizes for most creative, most festive, and most delicious (click here for Heather Knight's wrap-up at SFGate).
One of the judges, Beth Spotswood (above), feared that the desserts would somehow be politically correct and awful, but she was overwhelmed by the level of baking craft displayed. "Some of these could be served at the top restaurants in town."
Board President David Chiu eventually received a trophy for Most Creative, with his replica of City Hall complete with gingerbread people representing the supes and the mayor. Congratulations to all.
