Top prize at the Washington Post's sixth annual "Peeps Diorama Contest" was seized by Cori E. Wright, 38, of Falls Church, VA, whose "OccuPeep D.C." depicted the goings-on in McPherson Square in lavish detail. The hotly contested competition always brings in hundreds of whimsical entries.
Below is a smorgasbord of entries from 2012 and years past, beginning with "Peepdon Abbey" and continuing through "Peep de France," the royal wedding, peep riffs on art and literature, a peep nightclub, and oodles more fanciful creations make of those 3-inch-high concoctions of marshmallow, corn syrup, gelatin, and carnauba wax.
This is so meta! Well, if your creative juices are flowing, have a look at our crafts page for some more sweet inspiration.
