Gingerbread Men in ASCII Text Art

Updated on August 14, 2014

Gingerbread People in ASCII Art

When I smell molasses I think gingerbread and ginger snap cookies. I have gone down the aisle of the grocery store, in the baking section and picked up a container of molasses just to smell it. Usually, I have one around the house. I don't know if they ever expire, they don't last long enough for me to find out.

We made gingerbread people with an old cookie cutter my Grandmother had used when she made gingerbread people with my Mother. He had a pointed head, you almost never see that in modern gingerbread cookie cutters. I think it was a Santa hat, but I was never sure.

I've made a row of ASCII art gingerbread people. They were created a few years ago. Now they seem a bit stiff. I would do them differently if I made gingerbread ASCII art people again. For one, they would be simpler, a smoother look overall. I got into trying to show the icing I guess. Joan Stark has two bigger ASCII gingerbread men. I tend to make everything small, even when I'm not thinking to make them small.
