Once again the creative genius of the Washington DC community is on display in the Easter candy parade of homemade art that is the annual — and always humorous — Peep diorama contest.

Each spring the sticky critter-confections are decorated and transformed by readers of the Washington Post into scenes depicting famous books, paintings, or a current event, such as the party-crashers in the White House.

This year’s grand prize winner, entitled “Eep”, featured the whimsical scene from Pixar’s animated film, Up, in which the Victorian home was pulled aloft — in this case by dozens of balloons crafted using the yellow marshmallow chicks and pink bunnies.

All the finalists are unique and worth a look… like the one pictured above, featuring the Obama dog, entitled, Little Bo Peep.
