Ever been guilty of gushing, “oh you gorgeous wittle thing. I could just eat you up”, while cuddling a tiny baby? Well, now you can eat them up … literally. Believe it or not, the above adorable little creatures are made of marzipan. Amazing, eh? Talk about attention to detail.
But I just want to know if they smell as authentic as they look. It’s all about the nose with me, especially when it comes to that delicious baby scent. Um, make that clean baby scent. Most of Stephanie’s baby clothes were given away to a worthy charity when I realized that she was going to be my one and only. But I kept a few very special items, as in the outfit she wore when she came home from the hospital, a couple of baby blankets that I made myself, and a few items of clothing handmade by relatives. They’re tightly closed up in a plastic bag, which has miraculously kept the clean baby scent intact all these years later. Every so often, when I’m having one of those nostalgic, weepy, “where did my baby go?” moments, I open the bag ever so slightly and inhale deeply. Ah, she’s not gone after all. 🙂
Oh, stop shaking your heads and rolling your eyes. Hands up every mom of grown up children who misses her baby/babies every now and then and would give her non-dominant arm for a moment of babyhood back. Exactly!
Thanks to Leigh for bringing my attention to the marzipan babies via e-mail. Totally cool.
