[EntryThread]2020 December (not) Daily Doodles, Doodle 6 [Winners Announced] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Ah 2012, what a fine vintage! Oh, not talking about rum? Fine, here's your blasted Doodle:

 
Your task today is to create a seasonal model from food. You need to create one of the following objects:
-- a Santa
-- a Snowman
-- a Candle

You may only use edible materials (so no non-edible structural, decorative or adhesive elements). Things like food coloring, colored icing etc, are fine to use. It's your choice of foodstuffs, your choice of size and style. I would like to see a 3D item, rather than a 'flat' picture. However, if your available materials will only manage 'flat', then go ahead and do that! In judging, I will try to take account of the materials used, to allow for creative use of ingredients, and to allow some consideration for how difficult the materials used would have been (e.g. a Santa made entirely from fruits may be more difficult to make than a snowman made from store-bought fondant icing!). Enjoy!

You will need to take
-- a starting photograph of your edible materials
-- an in-progress shot
-- a final shot of your creation
-- a shot of your finished creation plus a card saying your pirate name and ocean


  • One entry per player please!
  • Entries only in this thread. If you have questions/comments, please put those in the main thread.
  • Please remember to include a card with your pirate name and ocean in each photo you post.
  • Host your image(s) on Imgur.
  • Contest will finish at game time
  • You may edit your post up until the deadline of Dec 22nd at 11.00 am

The standard rules apply as per the main thread.

My challenge was to make it only out of my breakfast this morning—onion poppyseed ciabatta, homemade hummus (as glue), avocado, and apple slices. The entire thing was promptly eaten by me (with the exception of the hummus-smeared apple skin, I didn't want to punish myself).

Greyladyy of Cerulean

Originally I had planned to go traditional by frosting my snowman with leftover cream cheese buttercream frosting from my son's birthday last week, but I liked him so well "au natural" that I decided to keep him stark naked....though I must say my decision seems to have made him blush a bit! :)



In case you can't tell from the pictures, the base is an acorn squash, the middle is a grapefruit and the head is an apple. The arms are small celery stalks. The scarf is made from pieces of candied orange peel squished together. The top hat is made from the top of an ancient pepper and a slice of mushroom. The eyes and mouth are whole cloves, the nose the tip of a carrot, and the buttons thin slices of a purple carrot studded with whole cloves.

Ingredients
Progress01
Progress02
Progress03
Progress04

Elyzz of Emerald

I used the rich biscuits (US cookies) from my favourite recipe book and three different sized glasses as cutters. I used icing as cement between the biscuits and to drizzle down the outside. the snowman decorations are all wine gums. Lastly I sprinkled some edible cake decorations (from my real Christmas cake this year) and dusted with icing sugar.

Cattrin on Emerald

Steamy the Bunman!


alt image

I've never made steamed buns before, so I wanted to give it a try. He came out kinda crooked, but I think that makes him look bashful.

Materials: Bread flour, sugar, yeast, water, food coloring, mint chocolate truffles, nonpareil mint chocolate chips

little head, big smile
fresh out of the sauna
maybe should've only been two balls tall
inside- lots of white chocolate
should've stuffed more into the bottom two, but I didn't want to lose the round shape from the truffle!

After a weekend of only getting "poor" and "booched" while playing this small game of alchemistry+distilling FINALLY I got an "excellent" so I think I'll name my creation:
Snowman in a Mint Spa

Also, I'll go step by step.

All that I used is Here, but to make it clearer...

Materials needed for the cocktail:
- 60 CL of yer finest White rum.
- 30 ML of Milk
- 30 ML of Condensed milk
- 15 ML of Mint Liqueur (The one that I've just now realized is hiding in the picture behind the milk carton)
- 5 fresh Mint leaves
- 2 drops of Vanilla extract
- More than enough Ice
-Shaker, muddler, jigger and martini glass.

Materials needed of the snowman:
-Marshmallows (I used 2 different sizes)
-1 Orange gummy candy.
-Chocolate coated marshmallow
-Chocolate sauce
-Toothpicks
-A Knife (Your favourite Scimitar works well too)

Before I actually started, a preparation Tip:
Muddle gently beforehand the mint leaves in the white rum to spice it up.

To assembly the snowman, as I try to explain Here:
I used the toothpicks to carefully stick together the marshmallows and give the shape of the snowman. I used the smaller ones for the arms and the chocolate coated one as a hat (or helmet in this case). Then, I used the knife to cut diagonally the candy and used it as a nose. The chocolate sauce was intended for decoration, but my clumsy hands made it a messy drunkish choco-snowman that I placed in the martini glass before pouring the drink.

For our drink This is what I did:
After the muddling the mint in the rum and letting it rest for a while, I took these off my rum and placed all the liquids in the quantities metioned before (along with the ice) in the shaker, and ... well... shake them.

To end this abomination absolutely tasty creation, just pour slowly the drink next to the marshmallowman so it doesn't end in a strange position.

Result here:

Why it looks like that? I'll leave a brief explanation in the other thread.

Alpha on Emerald

Santa-crunch-o-Licious



Ingredients .. unfortunately, the licorice did not make it to the final product, I ate it ^_^. The spaghetti (to keep Santa's clothes from falling off) and fondant for the face were added later.
Progress - Melting the marshmallows and mixing in the cereal
Progress - Shaping the figure (sticky and gooey, but delicious) -
Progress -Stacking Santa. Decided to go with whole strawberries for the legs
Progress - Dressing Santa. Awesome, the strawberries actually stayed on with the help of raw spaghetti
Progress -lending a hand or two

Santa did not survive my husband ... he ate all of my creation, even the raw spaghetti ...

It is iced with white royal icing
The flame and holly are made with icing, painted with food colouring.
The ganache is white chocolate and cream.
The snowman was made with leftover icing and painted with food colouring.


Ingredients
All the bits required to make the icing, swiss roll and ganache.
