In between ploughing through enormous piles of laundry and swearing at video file export formats last weekend, I made these:
They’re a little stumpy, due to the unfortunate anatomy of my gingerbread man cutter, but suitably spooky for Hallowe’en, I think. Also, they’re very simple to make, compared to how impressive they look.
Here’s a little video I made, showing how I iced them – also testing out my new tripod. The music is Black Spider, by my band Sunday Driver: (NB I’ve replaced this with a new version with much better audio. Apologies – I’m still learning how to do this stuff…)
I think this one is my favourite – he’ got a cute smile, but I diagnose a poorly-healed femur…
Technical specs: Vanilla sugar cookie recipe from Peggy Porschen’s Pretty Party Cakes. Royal icing made from a packet mix, mixed to a pretty soft Soft Peak stage (a bit too soft, I think), number 2 writing tip.
