Shaq’s Favorite Easy Bake Oven Recipes

Posted in christmas, food, humor, video with tags , , , on December 12, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I never thought I’d hear anyone utter the phrase “when you invite your bros over for tea,” and it kind of made my day. This video shows Shaquille O’Neal being a great sport (pun intended?), for a great cause. Just wait for it, and let yourself be confused and entertained in the meantime.

This hyper-realistic depiction of the human skull is made of solid gummy, weighs over 5 pounds, packs over 7,000 calories, and is 100% edible! Each highly-detailed and gluten-free World’s Largest Gummy Skull is handmade in the USA and is currently available in three flavors: red cherry, blue raspberry, and grape.

Cereal Killer Cafe

Posted in destinations, food, retro with tags , , on December 10, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

As terrible as I know it is for me, I have a major cereal addition. It’s basically the only thing I never get sick of. A new London restaurant, Cereal Killer Cafe offers a dazzling array of classic and rare cereals.

Twin brothers Alan and Gary Keery have designed a truly amazing tribute to crunchy, boxed morsels worldwide, offering over 60 types of cereal and 30 types of regular and alternative milk (rejoice, ye lactose intolerant!). All milk is offered on the side, so diners can control the exact amount of crunch they desire.

Rare and imported cereals (anyone remember URKEL-O’s? I don’t) are the same price as common ones, which is rather awesome.

The walls are decorated with vintage memorabilia…

And art made of…you guessed it: cereal.

The cafe also features sweet treats and novelties in keeping with their theme.

Keery brothers…please consider a NYC location!

If anyone across the pond stops by, please tell me your impressions of the place!

Jessica Joslin and Conjurer’s Kitchen: Morrigan

Posted in craft, food, sculpture, skulls and skeletons with tags , , , on December 3, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Two gifted creators of curiosities, Jessica Joslin and Conjurer’s Kitchen have teamed up to produce a delightfully intricate chocolate sculpture of Joslin’s “Morrigan.”

Last year, the talented Tonya Hurley gave me a piece from Conjurer’s Kitchen, and I can attest to the supreme quality of their work. I could not bring myself to eat my chocolate raven skull; it was simply too pleasant to look at. I’ve kept it as a sculpture.

Handmade from white chocolate, this exquisite piece of edible art comes beautifully packaged in a black box with a small print of the original sculpture.

You can purchase your chocolate Morrigan here in the US and here in Europe.

After the holiday weekend, food might be one of the last things you want to look at, but trust me…these cakes from Choccywoccydoodah will be an exception. These are are some of the most unique, quirky, finely crafted cakes in the world.

Their website does contain ready to order items, but the bespoke cake gallery (where all of these images come from) showcases the highlights of their talent.

Unfortunately, my dreams of one day gracing an event of my own with one of these masterpieces will most likely never come to fruition, as the shop is located in the UK and does not ship to the US.

Crazy Vintage Diet Books

Posted in absurd, Books, food, humor, vintage with tags , , , , on November 12, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

The Sexy Pineapple Diet in Desktops Goodies: Crazy Book Edition inspired this spinoff post about some of the more absurd diet publications of years gone by (for the record, I’m sure many of today’s crazes will eventually be relegated to this category). I had to see what else was lurking in our culture’s weight conscious past. Caution: the final one is actually NSFW.

Oh, to blame every sorry sugar binge I’ve had on the Devil!

Halloween Countdown: Ruth & Sira Garcia’s Chocolate Skulls

Posted in food, halloween, skulls and skeletons with tags , , on October 12, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

These creative confections have been featured on at least 15 sites I follow, but they are too pretty not to share. The inclusion of the gummy brains (with corresponding colors) is genius. Walnuts, as it turns out, also serve this purpose quite well.

Ah, now where are my chocolate molds so I can try my hand at this?
