It’s a Charlie Brown Christmas!
For this year’s family Christmas party, I wanted to make something adorable for a change. And what’s cuter than Charlie Brown at Christmas?
My family and I watch the special every year, which is easier now since DVR was invented.
Fact Time: Chuck himself is a mixture of Fondant/Modeling Chocolate and Snoopy’s dog house is chocolate-cocoa cake with vanilla cream frosting. The miserable tree is wire and fondant. All the black accents were painted on. Took about 2 days all together!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Nerdache Cakes!

We’ve all just received an awesome Christmas present from the one and only Pee-wee Herman: From now through January 12, 2014, the 1988 “Pee-wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special" is free to watch in its entirety on YouTube.
We’re a very lucky bunch of boys and girls. Thanks Pee-wee!

We’ve shared a few different Dalek Christmas trees here over the years, but now, thanks to John Smith, we get to watch a Dalek decorate a tree of its own in this short video E-card entitled “A Very Dalek Christmas”.
How does a murderous cyborg trim a Christmas tree? We don’t want to spoil the surprise, but let’s just say it’s going to be quite a toasty holiday for this particular Dalek. This awesome little video couldn’t be more perfectly titled.
Grant Snider of Incidental Comics just answered a burning question that arises every time we hear or sing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”. What are all those Reindeer Games that Rudolph isn’t allowed to join in? (Besides Monopoly, of course.)
Now we wish we could play with Santa’s flying reindeer too. Their games are awesome.

Christmas isn’t complete without at least one viewing of the 1965 TV special A Charlie Brown Christmas. The folks at Mashable recently used a flashmob of Peanuts players to treat unsuspecting New Yorkers to a real-life recreation of the theatre dance number, starting with Schroeder and his tiny piano sitting down in the snow to play Vince Guaraldi’s wonderfully familiar tune “Linus and Lucy”.
If you know this scene as well as we do, you’ll delight in identifying characters based on their singular dance moves. Suddenly it feels even more like Christmas around here.
Just in time for Christmas, Jason Freeny (previously featured here) has turned his artistic dissection skills from toys back to sweets to reveal the internal anatomy of a gingerbread man with an awesome new anatomy schematic print entitled Gingerbread Man Dissected.

Rebecca The Cookie Architect and 29 fellow cookie bakers collaborated on this awesome Gingerbread House of Cards. Inspire by architects Charles and Ray Eames’ House of Cards Game, Rebecca created gingerbread card pieces and mailed one to each participating cookie baker with instructions to decorate both sides however they pleased while sticking to a holiday-related theme. The completed pieces were sent back to Rebecca who then assembled the edible masterpiece.
We included a few other favourite gingerbread card pieces here, but you can see them all if you visit The Cookie Architect’s Facebook album.
