I went delete mad in my piocture folder today, so I uploaded these to photobucket before they were gone forever.
These are our olive penguins from last year. SO easy and SO cute!
and our first gingerbread house from scratch. Yeah, yeah...I burned the front, I know. It was 100% edible.

were the penguins actually edible, like finger foods at a party?

yuppers! They're just olives, cream cheese and carrots. If you really wanted to get crazAy you could give them pimento bowties
oej, I wish I could take credit for the idea but I found them on allrecipes. I've been a member there for seven years and I never even saw them until last year
I can't wait to make them again this year! Sadly my pretty blue cutting board isn't quite as pretty anymore so I'll need to come up with a new display.
heh, just noticed the pumpkin toothpicks
heres the recipe if anyone wants it...

what did you use to make the cream cheese in such a perfect shape? what's the blue stuff, some kind of card sock? just curious because i think that i may make these this year. thanks SWC!

you guys are welcome! They're just too cute, i'm already searching for a cheese log recipe so I can shape it into an igloo
kallie, I put my cream cheese in a ziplock bag with a icing nozzle shoved in a cut corner, it really made filling the body pieces a breeze!
