Sweets: GingerBORG Cube


Borg cookie cutter available for purchase from Etsy. US$10

This Borg Cube Christmas ornament is super simple to create using this cookie cutter from Etsy.  I seriously doubt it would last long on my family's Christmas tree, but hey, maybe your family has more self-restraint.
"Resistance is futile when it comes to holiday sweets and this gingerBORG cube is no exception. Sturdy, fragrant gingerbread make up the sides of this 3D cookie vessel which can be used to store cookies, candy or even some Klingon Gagh. You will be assimilated and it begins with cookies."

Humor: Supergirl and Batgirl

Batman and Superman by Mike Maihack


I love this series.  I'd seen the comic where Supergirl keeps changing her outfit, but before today, I didn't realize that this was an on-going series.  For some reason, when I read these, I keep reading the conversation in the voices of Alex and Hailey from Modern Family.

Sweets: Smaug Cake


"Last year, my sister in law surprised me with a Les Mis/Phantom cake, this year, I’ve been surprised with a Hobbit cake!  The Smaug is made with cereal and everything was edible but I refuse to eat the dragon and Bilbo.  I loved this cake!"
