Title: KIng Kong was Cookie Monster's Great Great Grandpa
Post by: cmarion3 on January 10, 2016 10:12:36 AM
Yes, this is a little known fact, "KIng Kong was Cookie Monster's Great Great Grandpa". He wasn't going for the girl, she just got in the way...or he hoped she could bake. I made this for the holidays, and the kids loved it. It didn't last very long, we had to do a contest for who got to eat the plane and the King himself. So these are the best pics I got. BTW, it was very warm here in Connecticut on Christmas day, looked and felt more like early October.

So here he is, eating his way up the Empire State Building, which is sticking out of the clouds.

I would have wanted to be in the contest to eat King Kong too.  Great job!

what I did not foolishly do, is bake a lot of gingerbread King Kongs. I have some Ninjabread cookie cutters that are close enough. King himself was cut by hand and modified to work with the Empire State building....but after you bite the head off, who can tell?

Wow, that is just wonderfully creative and beautiful!  You did a great job on the shapes of the building, ape, and biplane, and I like how you did almost all of the detailing in frosting too, rather than candy pieces.  If there's such a thing as a King Kong museum, this deserves to be a center piece in their exhibits.

But we ate it!

Gingerbread King Kong has a unibrow. That is fantastic all by itself! Great idea and construction, and kudos to the unibrow.

Ha ha ha. Glad you love his unibrow.

Congratulations on your win!  Now King Kong has another feather in his cap to brag about when he runs into Godzilla down at the kaiju watering hole.

Thanks, though I wish there had been more entries. I love the creations everyone makes out of sugar, flour, and love. Oh, don't forget the butter!

I've already spent part of my prize. I've wanted a Gelli plate for so long and just haven't splurged on one. I mean, I splurge on lots of other things...which is probably why I have no money to splurge on the plate. LOL.

So everyone start planning your 2016 entry now!
