Play With Your Food


We’ve seen some really amazing zoetrope cakes from Alexandre Dubosc in the past, and this one is just as mesmerizing to watch. When animated, this chocolate cake titled ‘Melting Pop’ shows a series of short scenes all about popcorn. I watched this gif for at least five minutes before I remembered that I needed to finish writing about it.

Redditor teddy-bear-the1st has a black cat who’s apparently sick of being a black cat for Halloween. This year it decided to get a costume rotation going and used the flour container to create a whole new demonic look to terrorize the gluten intolerant.

YouTuber Astonishing Studios used LEGO bricks for possibly my favorite reason of all time: to make a working McDonald’s McFlurry Maker! The hand-churn style machine not only makes fresh vanilla ice cream, but it also contains two compartments for M&M’s and Oreo toppings.

In the video, he explains a bit how to construct your own LEGO McFlurry machine as well as the ingredients for the frozen dessert. So if your boss doesn’t want to break the budget for any fun break room appliances, you can just bring your own.

cats with beer

Have you ever thought about what craft beer pairs best with your cat? There’s an catsontap Instagram account for that.

There doesn’t seem to be any kind of advertising angle to the project – only “a visual adoration of all things cats and beer”. However, we assume that there are a number ad agencies out there who are kicking themselves right now for not coming up with this idea years ago.

disney princesses as hot dogs

Deranged crafter Gabriella Paiella (her words, not mine) and Anna Hezel have created gloriousness with their “Disney Princesses as Hot Dogs” project.

All you need are hot dogs, hot dog buns, processed American Cheese (you know the kind), condiments, a decent vegetable drawer and a little imagination.

I think Rapunzel’s corn silk hair is my personal favorite, but I’d love to see what else people come up with.

You can learn to make your own at Lucky Peach.

La Ricetta Ristorante Pizzeria in Japan’s Kanagawa Prefecture is known for more than just Italian food – they have also become famous for creating artistic pancakes featuring popular Manga characters.

The creations are made solely with pancake batter, soy milk and awesome skill, with the color differences being achieved by varied cooking times.

As you’ll see, watching Jell-O get slapped with a tennis racket is surprisingly entertaining.

The slow motion definitely helps.

It seems like every nation has their own unique traditions during New Year’s, and Japan is no exception. During New Year’s, it was often traditional for Japanese shops (including markets) to close down for the holiday. So, with dining-out options limited, folks would then dine on osechi ryouri over the course of several days. The dish, which is served in stackable bento boxes, features a cornucopia of symbolic goodies–for instance, shrimp typically represents the elderly (because they’re hunched over).

Interestingly, Nintendo is coming out with their own osechi ryouri for 2016 to be sold in Japanese department store Takashimaya. Nintendo’s version is Super Mario-themed, and it comes with special cards. The price is pretty steep ($225), but since it’s meant to last a few days, it might be worth the price.
