Aldebaron “Allie” Levin, 9, displays the edible gingerbread farm scene she made with her aunt, Barbara Levin, who is the food and beverage director at Santa Ysabel Casino. Sitting on a large square of gingerbread, the scene includes a cottage, windmill, crops and a a frozen pond created with blue-dyed poured sugar. Allie says she did most of the decorating, using ribbon candy, candy canes, sour worms, chocolate gingerbread men, Nerds and other candies. Allie is the daughter of Thomas Levin, who has the gingerbread scene on display in his real estate office, TL & Associates, at the corner of Main and Eighth streets. Thomas Levin invites Ramonans to stop by and see the gingerbread farm. He and his sister, Barbara, owned BT Jac’s restaurant at that site in the 1990s. They plan to create a gingerbread town for the holidays next year with a wishing well that people can drop coins into to give to a local charity.
