Some Answers to Some Very Frequently Asked Questions

Hey everyone!

Thanks for all the great comments on our candy recreation of the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.

As always I do my best writing when hungover so here goes at answering some questions, as I’m dehydrated, ornery and suffering from an eight hour lack of booze:




Seventy five.

A wooden leg.

“Biotech” is a joke from Overheardinnewyork.com referring to a kid misreading the word as “beeyotch,” and thinking a local school offered courses in it. I use it far too often.

We definitely could have actually made the whole thing out of gingerbread, but my baking skills are subpar, and gingerbread is a bitch to work with.

The whole castle gets cannabalized by my parents’ pets for a few weeks and then by some neighborhood children, and then we will eventually blow it up. Not joking. That’s our plan. We’re going to film it.

Our plans for next year? Either Moria… or… the Death Star, entirely suspended.



  1. I vote for Moria.

    And am really looking forward to the fireworks. Yay!

  2. Moria would be cool but I really would like to see what you would do with the Death Star!!

  3. Minas Tirith was interesting (and my favorite place in Eä!). I want to see Moria. *That* sounds like a piece of work!

  4. I freaking love that biotech joke. I’m so glad someone else uses it regularly.

  5. If you decide on a non-Middle Earth scene next time, I want to see the Battle of Endor’s forest moon made from savoury snacks (with Pom-Bear ewoks and Twiglet-legged AT-STs) or Hogwarts made from meat products, with a little cocktail sausage Harry Potter.

    (Do you have Pom-Bears and Twiglets in the US? I was impressed you had Licorice Allsorts. Oh and you call cocktail sausages “wieners”, I think.)

  6. By the way, you shouldn’t let anyone eat that model scene after it’s been sitting there gathering bacteria all month – they might come down with a nasty case of diorama.
