Run, run, run as fast as you can, can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!
Somewhere in a world unseen by human eyes, lies a realm known as Harmonia. It is a place that represents the good things in life: Toys, Love, Sweets, you name it. That last one falls under the jurisdiction of the kingdom of Confectionaria, and it is they who make all things which tickle our sweet tooth. It is a delicious place, though not without danger: plaque monsters and the like invade the kingdom on a regular basis. Confectionaria is ruled over by as-of-yet king, along with his daughter, Princess Ginger. Lately, however, Ginger has not been herself

(by that point Bleed had moved all of his webcomics to, making this his only webcomic not started on DA.)
The comic tends to tread the line between cute and cuddly and nightmarish and grotesque. Of course, for anyone who's read Bleed's previous works, this is pretty much par for the course. Interestingly, though, out of his three comics Sugar Bits has the least amount of bloodshed and mature themes as of yet. But anything could happen as the comic goes on.
So that said, have a look and see if you enjoy.
The webcomic has the following examples of:
