Ettin's make good eatin's

At least, that's what we're assuming. We'll figure it out for sure tomorrow, when we bite both heads off the Ettins while trying the sugar cookies.

Alas, no out of town guests this year for my birthday. But another friend volunteered to come over and help me ice the 65 sugar cookies currently sitting in my kitchen. And she also volunteered to watch me as I made a (different than usual!) mess of icing the vanilla flavored yellow cake with cherry preserves between layers, and almond flavored icing. Mmmm... looking forward to tomorrow.

You scream, I scream - ice cream cones!



Ettins
Ettins are good eatings. I'm just doing my best to keep the geek quality high in our household.



EttinFem
Female Ettin.

Don't ask if you don't want to know how to tell this Ettin is female. [But if you've painted any D&D mini's, you should know why.] [And no, this one was NOT done by me. Blame the friend.]

This was supposed to be a flower. It made a much better odd shaped butterfly instead.



EvilSmileMan
Evil Smiley Gingerbread Man.

The bright yellow icing makes me think of the "Be Happy" smile. The face makes me think of evvvillllll. [And, no, this one's not my fault either.]

Watch out - the Giant Gingerbread man is coming for you!
