On, Friday, I made some chocolate gingerbread men to take with me to my friend's holiday cookie decorating party.
Of course, I didn't have a gingerbread man cookie cutter, nor could I buy one, so I had to cut them out using a paper template.
All things considered, I think they turned out pretty well.
I took them to the party, where I scored massive bonus points for making CHOCOLATE gingerbread men, and also for making them without the use of a cookie cutter.
And then I tried to decorate them. And let's just say, I'm not giving Martha a run for her money any time soon.
This was my first attempt.
It wouldn't be so bad ... you know, if I were FIVE.
This is punk man. I made him when I got tired of trying to use the icing.
Uh oh. I guess this gingerbread man suffered some red eye when I took his picture.
A Family of Freaks.
Luckily for me, freakish gingerbread men taste just as good as the non-freakish variety. Unlucky for the poor gingerbread men. They're all gone now.
