This year I decided to make a "Yeti Village".    Yetis is kinda my theme lately because I have been sewing so many fabric ones!  

EVERYTHING is edible except for the string, 1 toothpick and the plate it sits on.     Its also totally vegan and tastes good if you cook it for a shorter time so the cookies are softer.    

My Yeti Village  has mountains with yetis on the ledges, a ski lodge, a couple of tiny houses, trees and best of all a cable car!   I chose blues and greens and white for the majority of my coloring.     Yetis are made from a powder sugar and cornstarch "clay" and then hand painted with paint I made with food coloring and cornstarch.  

I had a lot of fun making this, it ended up as a cute centerpiece for the table.  

Thanks for looking!












Inspired by my sewn yetis

It is so original.
A village full of yetis, with mountains, tiny houses and even a cable car.

That is fantastic. Even the base is a cookie? Just wow. Nearly as cute as your fabric yetis Wink.

Thanks!   Yes the whole base is that hard gingerbread cookie, kind of a freeform shape, I "glued" it with icing to the plate its on so it would stay put!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
