Gingerbread Flash (Merry Christmas)

So for Christmas this year I decided to make a Gingerbread Flash. Pretty appropriate considering the old Gingerbread Man story and the taunt that he would yell while running at cookie crumbling speeds: Run, run as fast as you can; You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man.

I made two attempts with varying success. This is the first time I had done anything by myself involving Gingerbread men and even then I was using a Trader Joe’s Giant Gingerbread Man as a template. I used a combination of  cake and cookie frosting (should have just used cake frosting) and it was a fun learning experience overall.

Flash 1.0 (Barry):

My first attempt at Gingerbread Flash. You can tell it is Barry because of the belt and the blue eyes.

Flash 2.0 (Wally):

My second attempt came out a little better. This is kind of a mix of looks for Wally: JLU/New Comic Costume emblem, with exposed green eyes and centered belt that meets in the middle.

The Fastest Gingerbread Men Alive!

Flash in DC Holiday Special

DC Holiday Special 2009Just a quick note: Today’s DC Holiday Special ’09 does feature a Flash story, “The Flash Before Christmas” by Amy Wolfram and Daniel Leister. Surprisingly, it’s a Wally West story, in which the speedster tries to do what the rest of us do just before Christmas: Take care of a zillion last-minute tasks.
