This is so adorable and so simple. I'm thinking of adapting this to do a snowman for Christmas. Really love it.

The port wine cheese logs are not available ANYWHERE, any more. I even went on line to find a store in Washington state that sold them. Not available. so I bought the round cheddar logs which are still available and after waiting until they were room temperature, shaped them into logs. They are yellow, not pink though.

This turned out super cute and recieved lots of compliments. Unfortunately the grocery store I went to said they only sell cheese logs around Thanksgiving and Christmas. I let a cheese ball sit out for a bit to get soft then shaped it into legs, arms, the body and head and it worked just fine. I cut a tiny smile out of a slice of cheese for the mouth instead of using the pimiento.
