Calvin & Hobbes Cookies Part 2 - House of Horrors

This is a continuation of my recent post regarding Recreating the Awesomeness that is Calvin and Hobbes.  For my second in the series I chose the Snowmen House of Horrors comic.

There were actually fewer mishaps with this one than the last one, but it was somewhat tricky to get it set up right. I struggled with the sled and the snowman arms, but I was able to come up with something I was happy with - a cardboard sled and real stick arms. Only one cookie broke during construction (the tree snapped off) and for some reason, all three of the tennis racket snowman pieces broke when they came out of the oven - the racket broke off from the cookie. But with a little cardboard and glue everything was all set. (Just don't eat that one! The glue is non-toxic, but still.)

Here are some pictures of the process:

The initial outlining in frosting:

Some close-ups:


The left-over pieces when all was said and done. (Time to eat the pieces. Anyone hungry?)

And this is the completed masterpiece:

All in all another fun project! Stay tuned for more.

Update: I just found out that Bill Watterson, the creator of Calvin and Hobbes has been interviewed (for the first time in 15 years). What timing! Check it out here.
