"countless hours spent talking to myself" LMAO

Just please tell me how you came up with "occult confectionary" because my first thought is the Stay-Puffed Marshmallow Man.

Good question, thanks for asking - I think I was just thinking about how in many works of fantasy there are different forms of magic practices, like necromancy, alchemy, divination, etc... Since I knew that Sugar Daddy was going to bring a giant Gingerbread Man to life, I started to think that the act of making a man from dough and bringing him to life - that's very much like the story of the Golem, from Jewish folklore. So it kind of developed from there... the specific phrase "occult confectionery" is probably influenced by the work of comic writer Grant Morrison, who once wrote a Batman story involving "occult architecture"... I read that as a teenager and it always stuck with me. So not influenced by Ghostbusters at all, although I am a big fan of that movie!
