Gingerbread, Sweaters and Weddings

Published December 24, 2009 by Graham

The Where the Wild Things Are-inspired madness marches on! Just in time for Christmas, ultra-appetizing Aussie food blog A Table For Two built a impressively spherical gingerbread house inspired by the forts in the movie.

I made lots and lots of gingerbread sticks about 4cm long, and glued them together over a basketball, using sugar toffee. The next thing I know, my middle and index fingers are soon covered in blisters from the hot sugar toffee. Ouch! (I told you I was ambitious)

Ambitious indeed! They have brilliantly detailed step-by-step instructions on their blog for anyone who dares to replicate this masterpiece. For those of you more crafty than culinary, check out knitting blog Splendor’s lovely hooded wolf-suit sweater. They’e even got a free PDF of the pattern, written in 19 different sizes!

Finally, a wedding photography blog called Helmutwalker shares some photos from a fairytale-themed wedding. What better ringbearer could you ask for than Max, king of all the Wild Things? I wonder if they swapped out “You may kiss the bride” for “Let the wild rumpus start!” How cute:

New additions to the growing category of WTWTA desserts! The treats in the first row have some interesting photographic action going on, as well as a pleasingly generous amount of frosting.

Cupcakes on row #2 manage to recreate Sendak’s color palette with impressive fidelity.

Cookies on row #3 come courtesy of the appropriately-named Night Kitchen Bakery. Carol looks so sweet!

Bake on, bakers. And send us photos!
