In grade 3, our French teacher would recite a poem about a man made of sweets and candy. I can't recall much, except that the character had marshmallow shoes and (I think) gingerbread fingers, but it just described how he was made from different desserts in a magical way.
I'm not sure if it's just something she learnt from her family or an actual poem. I've tried searching various translations, asking people learning French and a few french teachers and they haven't heard of it, so I'm not sure if it's something she just picked up, but I've been looking for years without any luck. Just wondering if anyone in here might have heard of it?
