Village fête round up, the edible edition

I hope you're not too hungry because this week's Fête update has an edible theme.

Remember Mr WithaY? He of the fish fetish? Well, we've upset him with our insinuations about the dubious legality of toothpick and marker pen use, and the suggestion he might have a Thing for fish, so he came up with this.

Look! It's entitled "Great big louche green cocktail gorilla".






It has a tongue made from a maraschino cherry. So that's what the nasty little buggers are for.

That gorilla REALLY wants you to have fun. Stop it gorilla, you're trying too hard.


Next! Ok, this one sort of needs context. Someone linked to this site on Twitter a few weeks ago (yes, it's in Japanese, you only need to look at the pictures). Panda bread!

Jojo, being an impressionable soul decided to attempt it. Um, full marks for effort Jojo.

Next, comes Caroline who has submitted this magnificent gingerbread house. The fact that she made it three years ago is neither here nor there. Possibly. We'll let the judges decide.


Finally, Bevchen whose stakhanite fête entry production is verging on alarming has made a lovely housewarming cake.




Far too much actual competence being displayed here. Just wait until I make my Johnny Halliday cake.


Theoretically fête entries close TOMORROW. But because I have been fairly lax about the whole fête thing, I'm going to give you another week. Ginger! Get those salamis coming in! Don't let me down, girl.

Such fabulousness. So love the Gorilla. Love all of the entries really. Even the panda bread

I've never seen a gingerbread house that scared me before...your 'fete really brings them out in droves.

Is the fish still in the running?

bevchen said...

The gorilla. OMG! What is it made of? please tell me that giant green body is not a courgette?1?

OK, I admit it... I clearly have too much time on my hands. Although to be fair I was making the cake anyway.

Deformed pandas are people too! Well, no, they aren't, but I think I like the panda bread all the better for being not quite panda-perfect. Pandas themselves can't even figure out how to have sex with one another properly--just imagine what a job they'd do making person bread.

That panda bread is great! It's inspired me to try all sorts of other baked animals now.

Great big louche green cocktail gorilla looks kind of like a sock monkey, no?

GingerB said...

Still August 31 on this side of the pond, and my entries are in! I feel a win coming on, or at least the need of some heartburn meds after eating my materials. I had to settle down with cake and cheese toast.

The primate is so brilliant even my 16-month-old recognised it (mama means monkey in his weird language). I love Ginger's salamy cabybaras too.

Juci said...

Don't know why I spelled salami with a y though. I must have been already focusing on getting the next word right.

I tried that panda bread recipe too, with similar results. Super into the Gorilla too!

Honestly, this is so inspiring - it made me open the fridge and search franticly for some craftable food. But all I could find was half a bottle of champagne, beef mince and tomato puree. Would that be too gross?
And who in his right mind didn't finish the bottle?
