Denial! Denial! Denial!

Yes, that's the land where I dwell. It's been a long, heartbreaking at times baseball season, so the last game just turned out way differently in my mind than in reality. Anyone who wants to join me here in Denial will be treated with kindness, met with kleenex, and fed whatever comfort food they want.

Anyhoo...

My friend sent me a forward of the most marvelous confections (though actually eating them would make me a bit queasy).

There are a whole bunch more, that I'm putting in link form (behind the cut tag for neatness) to spare the dial-up folks. They are so delicate and so lifelike in pose and expression, I just had to share. (I really hope nobody ate them after the photo shoot. **shudders**)

Now I think I'll go and cry myself to sleep. Alas, poor Yankees, so will you all. **sniffles**

Now eating babies I'm not against (insert troll like behaviour here). But really i draw the line at marzipan that's just wrong! Bleuch!

I wouldn't be able to eat them either. I'd probably shellac them and try to turn them into christmas ornaments.

Those marzipan babies are cute but very, very, very creepy!

They're so perfect, it's almost obscene. And as for eating them. I couldn't. Really. The whole idea makes me shudder.

LOL. I was just going to put that link up as well.

But they're so cute and somehow them not being marzipan only makes them cuter. Because then you don't have the urge to eat them. *g*

These are beyond creepy! At first I thought this was some pro-lifer image but the fact that you are supposed to devour them seems to argue against that or is asking for logical consistency asking too much?

I thought the babies were cute until I read they were candy. Now I am seriously creeped out and thinking of Goya's portrait of Cronos, which is one of the grossest bits of art ever made. (So much so that my daughter got a lot of respect points from the 7th grade boys when she used it in a mythology report a few years ago.)

Those marzipan babies are cute but creepy - glad to see that they are actually scuptures, makes me feel a lot better about them.

Awww, they are adorable. I cannot see how anyone could eat them.

*HUGS*

So cute...
Love your icon, (the one where David is hugging James) it's just so cute.

Anyway, glad we both love Kallysten's writing! Hurray for Blurred Memories!
