Clinical Insanity in Homo gingerbreadensis

I made gingerbread people (and trees, and bells, and stars) yesterday. I also made lemon icing to decorate them with. The bells and stars look fine, the trees came out very well, but some of the gingerbread people are a little... odd.

Six scary ginger men, five gold rings, four calling birds...

Keep in mind that many of these represent my second try, after the first face was so scary I wiped it off to start fresh.

Also, that one on the top left? I was trying for business wear, see -- that's supposed to be a tie. I'm... not entirely sure what it came out as, exactly, but I don't think it's office-appropriate. He was the first or second one I tried, and the whole experience was so scarring I stuck with the traditional three buttons and smiley face for all the rest.

So cute, even the one in the jockstrap. :-)

They probably involve raisins. Or -- no, no, raisins are too vanilla (as it were). Cranberries. Dried blueberries. Nonstandard spices. Possibly even (gasp, shock) food coloring! Scandalous.

I don't think I've ever seen the seams drawn in for clothing, rather than the outer edges. You should have gone with lines at the ends of the sleeves and pant legs. The tie is good, but it's upsidedown (the widest bit should be at the bottom.)

Nevertheless, they look yummy. ::runs off to find gingerbread recipes and figure out what is involved:: Now I'm hungry.

Oh, that's hilarious. Thank you so much for sharing the pictures.
