Penguin here.

Blue Bear and I spent a lot of time preparing some holiday treats this year, and I will be sharing a couple of samples (in the form of photos) with you guys.

We were in charge of this year’s buche de noel, otherwise known as a Christmas log. We made it as a chocolate swiss roll covered in chocolate ganache and surrounded by meringue snowmen.

This year we made a ton of decorated cookies. This is only a small sample of them. You may notice some video game characters here, such as Link from Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Link from Wind Waker and Moogles from Final Fantasy. You may also notice that one of our Santas is Blue Bear’s dog Skunk.

Hey everyone. I’ve shared my sister’s art before on here, because she does often draw or photograph cute things, but I believe this to be among her best works. In school, she had to do a project with the theme of childhood, and her most representative individual object from her childhood that was pertinent to that theme was the little teddy bear depicted here named Bear-B (pronounced bearbee). I’m incredibly impressed by the detail she managed to capture in this picture, and the innocence of childhood being represented so strongly. Also, this is a photograph of the original image, so imagine how vivid in detail it is in person.

Blue Bear and I want to wish you all happy holidays. Every year, on December 24th, we make special sugar cookies that we spend nearly all day decorating. We are quite proud of them and we think that they’re cute enough to belong here on ACAD, so we wanted to share them with you guys! How do you like them? Did you notice our Blue Bear and Penguin heads?

Enjoy the holidays!
