Avengerbread Men

Postby DuelLadyS » 07 Dec 2012, 17:23

If you'll be so kind as to indulge me, I'd like to show off this year's geeky gingerbread men. Last year was Magic: the Gingering. Before that was Scott Pilgrim Vs. the Frosting. This year? Avengerbread.

So, I learned that sliver pearl dust is better than trying to mix white and black for grey spots, but I still have no good solution for that color. Also, the Hulk makes a damn nice cookie man, best looking one I've done in ages.

Also, just for fun...

Shame the frosting went runny on me, messed up that signature smile. Ah well- still creepy. :wink:

These are freaking amazing! How did you manage to get the shapes for them? And if you don't have the cutters, then how did you manage to shape them? O_o
Wow! :D

Of course I'm out of my mind. It's dark and scary in there!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

It's pretty simple, actually- I sketch gingerbread versions of whoever I'm doing on paper, use crayons for a color guide (the thick lines give a better representation of the frosting thickness), then cut those out to use as a stencil. Then I take a butterknife to the dough.

Here's a quick snapshot of the stencils- the Scott Pilgrim ones got ruined when I made the cookies (extra-moist dough that year.) The magic ones are around somewhere- since the outline on those was just squares, I didn't need to trace anything.

Edit: Just adding some new links, since I'm not sure the thumbnails are working. At least, they aren't on my end... *grumble*

I survived spaMEGAdon and all I got was this lousy signature joke.

I don't have accounts for either at the moment... I use twitter under HoshiChiri, so if you're so inclined, feel free to post them to your own accounts and credit the twitter account.
