my friends are such bad influences. 

we had a secret Santa to do this year, and every gift had to be homemade.  The friend i was supposed to make a gift for is considerably creepy.  hes into the whole gothicy theme and loves slasher flicks and such.  And he loves my baking (hurrah!)

So i was sitting there wondering "hmmm what could i make for my gore obsessed friend that loves cake and cookies?"

and then it hit me

DEAD GINGERBREAD MEN!!!!

so i baked some normal gingerbread men from a normal recipe (although i cut down majorly on the sugar and you'll see why soon), decapitated them, dismembered some, made bullet holes with toothpicks, large holes in the center of their body, removed legs, arms, cut them in half... etc.

and then i made a concoction sort of like caramel, pretty much a lot of sugar + a little water boiled in a pot with red food colouring.  this was the hardest part because sometimes the mix didn't harden well because there was too much water, so it took me a while to get the right consistency.

So i arranged my little gingerbread men on a piece of wax paper, placed the various pieces in various poses, and poured some sugar mix on top of the wounds.  then when the sugar hardened i drew little Xs where eyes should be.  to add some humor.

My friend loved them.  so did everyone else.  Ive gotten a reputation as being considerably evil and twisted, but thats ok.

I took some pictures, but i cant find them  Tongue  when i do I'll post them

i have a feeling that your friend would enjoy the oh-so-talented gary bussey's latest flick (this is in 2005, hard to believe I know!) the gingerdead man. where a serial killer is reincarnated as a gingerbread man and goes on a killing rampage. im like, why dont they just step on him or something. hmm. tose cookies sound awesome!

Your cookies do sound incredibly awesome. I really want to see pictures if you ever find them. It's kind of like those already been chewed gingerbread cutters (bitemark where the arm, leg, or head should be), but better.

I found the pictures!  i only have closeups of a single one, but i have a group (ish) shot







I love my dead gingerbread men.  My friend said that these are what the gingerbread men would look like if the people that chased it used a shotgun.
