What do you do when your city is suddenly carpet-bombed with 20 inches of godforsaken snow? This, apparently.
After grabbing one of the few cartons of eggs left in the state, my girlfriend and I set out to fashion a holiday treat for the
suckers dedicated Bethesda devs that came to work on Monday. Of course, finding ingredients during a record-breaking snowfall turned out to be the easy part. Finding a mold that would double as the Vault Boy was the really stupid challenge.
That being said, if you can somehow locate a large Gingerbread Man-shaped aluminum mold, torturing it into shape with a pair of needle-nose pliers does the trick. Important steps: after cutting, be sure to fully crook the arm, and add a slight hair-flip/thumbs-up for the classic pose. Optional step: add love.
A few people have asked me for the recipe: Joy of Cooking’s “Rich Rolled Cookie” is the one. Gray-colored shoes were achieved with a mixture of basic frosting and equal parts red/blue/yellow food coloring. There’s certainly plenty of room to improve on the decoration.
On that note, if you guys have seen and/or produced any cool Bethesda or id-themed holiday creations, be sure to pass them our way. We’re hungry.
