Need a flag pole for your gingerbread house? Or fuzzy antlers for your reindeer? Or drum sticks for your little drummer boy? Asian Food Grocer presents...drum roll please...the most inventive holiday Pocky creations ever! From a Pocky winter wonderland to Pocky gingerbread houses, these confectionery creations make working with Pocky look like a piece of cake.
Pocky Wonderland Forest
Walking in a Pocky wonderland. Who wouldn't want to get lost in this edible forest? This creation comes from Not Quite Nigella - an Australian foodie with a passion for homemade Pocky. Not Quite Nigella made her own Pocky for this cake (we know, she's seriously talented) but if your baking skills aren't up to par, replicate her winter wonderland with Milk Pocky, Chocolate Crush Pocky, or Hazelnut Dessert Pocky. She also includes a recipe for an equally appealing and visually stunning Pocky sundae. Can't wait to see what the Pocky pro makes next!
Pocky Gingerbread House
When it comes to gingerbread houses, Pocky is the new candy cane. Use it to make a door frame or flag pole, spell out words, create a snow-lined roof, or even as logs for a cabin gingerbread house. For inspiration, take a look at this gingerbread house from Miss Jellybeano. And this award-winning gingerbread castle from Unschool Me is the perfect example of how you can use Pocky sticks to make flag poles. A medieval feast for the eyes!
Purely Ornamental Pocky
To give Pocky presents that don't come with poundage, take a look at these adorable earrings by Shiritsu on DevianArt. When you wear these earrings, don't be surprised if someone tries to nibble on your lobes. Pocky is just that good. If you're super crafty like this artist, don't stop at earrings. Make Pocky ornaments for the tree!
