CHALLENGE: A MONSTER of a Dessert

Create a sprite of a monster made out of a dessert. For example the 'Loch Ness Cheese Cake' or 'Chocothulhu'. However, I'd prefer that you create your own kind of monster.

Also, please make sure you mention what kind of dessert your creature is made from. Have a look at this list for some ideas.

Note: The sprite must be of your own design. So, your personal interpretation of a monstrous icecream would be OK, but using the design of this Pokemon wouldn't be, as it's a dessert monster that already exists. Essentially, no directly copying someone else's design. "Flankenstein" would be fine, as Frankenstein's Monster was never made out of a flan.

Canvas Size - Max 75 x 75.
Colours - Max 25.
Transparency - Required.
Animation - Optional.

Swiss Chocolate Monster WIP (with chocolate-coated almond on top). One of my first tries at non-Gameboy-colours. Great thanks go out to jalonso, whose Medici-palette I am using here (he said it was free for use in its WIP thread).
It's also the first time I'm actively trying to AA (inside the lineart).
I feel that lots of things could still be improved about the picture, so I'd be grateful for any constructive criticism.

Edit: Right, looks like we seamen will have to stick together.
@ kevink: I think your Strawberryghoulcake is an excellent start with a promising colour choice. Go for it!
@Zilus: Good start. I think it would be a good idea to enlarge the chocolozombie to fill the whole 75x75px canvas, and to use colours that offer more contrast. At the moment, the shades of gray and brown you use are very very similar, thus failing to add an impression of volume to the piece.

I guess we first-posters may as well welcome each other, so:
Hi Wyeth! Welcome to the forum! 
I like the golem's posture. One of the arms seems to be much longer than the other one, however.

My pixel for challenge uploaded 12/2/2010 and still waits approval. How's that? Is it not good enough?

It's in now, don't worry. :) I think sometimes the admins just don't get round to promote art to the gallery. If the art isn't good enough you'll apparently get a message saying so.

I do not worry, thanx. I don't know was art in the gallery or not, but status of file was "AWAITING APPROVAL", and it changed only few minutes ago.
