In many traditions, a loaf of special bread is baked in the shape of a man, to symbolize the god of the harvest. You can easily make a loaf of Lammas bread by using a pre-made loaf of bread dough, or make up your favorite recipe.

I'd do this at Samhain, give him a fatter belly, slit his belly and remove some of the belly bread, fill with a Spinach Dip, & use the pulled bread and his limbs, etc for dipping !!
