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.

Kudos to you for having the patience to cut the men out. They look so yummy!
Yes, many kudos for your patience. I'm pretty sure I would have decided to make gingerbread circles and called them ornaments instead.
they look(ed) great!
Cookies without cutters? Insanity!
(I would have fashioned one from a coat hanger)
Those are extremely funny. :)
Good work for making them without a cutter. And for channelling your inner 5-year-old! j/k
LOL. I'm lazy enough I wouldn't have even bothered with icing...
Fashioning a cookie cutter from a coat hanger? Awesome! But I don't think I would have been able to get it into the right shape.
There's no way I would have iced them had I not been at a cookie decorating party, because I too am lazy. But since I was there....
Now those are my kind of gingerbread freaks.
