The candy cane fit in well with the festive decorations on Third Street as residents, candy fans and even Mayor Kevin Burns joined in to cheer on Roby.

Roby is a certified master chef of pastry and artistry, and he has created other masterpieces including a 700 pound sculpture of Neil Armstrong in an astronaut suit that was featured on the Food Network. He also created a life-size chocolate sculpture of a Blackhawks player honoring Chicago Blackhawk's legend Eddie Olczyk when the team won the 2010 Stanley Cup.
