Louise Caola - Cakes In Disguise

What started off as a prank when amateur baker Louise Caola created her first sausage and mash cake as a joke for a friend's birthday, turned out to be a full time baking pursuit for the Londoner. Surprised by the positive response from her friends,  the 23 year-old Caola began creating more faux savoury cakes, posting the pictures to her Twitter and Instagram pages.
Orders started to flood in from all over the internet!

With her growing popularity, Caola  quit her day job in advertising  and seriously ventured into her cake business full time, making novelty cakes and  naming her brand Poppy&Lulu.

Is it a pizza? Is it a cake? Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "the proof is in the pudding" doesn't it?

It's still summer here, folks and forever will be! Though I'm not complaining (cold weather depresses me), it does get a little boring. If we had all the four seasons, Fall would be my favourite, hands down.
I made these pumpkin-shaped bread rolls yesterday as I wanted to make something cute and Fall-ish. You can find the tutorial here. I made the dough using the 65°C Bread  method. I used cloves for the stems as they were the closest edible thing I could find in the kitchen that resembled stems. I was pretty happy with how they turned out. The cloves imparted a subtle cinnamon-ish flavour and smell to the bread.

While I'm on the subject of pumpkins, check out the following adorable painted pumpkin ideas from Better Homes And Gardens.
Use cone-shape pumpkins and spray-paint to create these Halloween treats.
Spray-paint two pumpkins luscious matte black. Craft cardstock features, and pin in place.
"Ice" the pumpkins and squash in pretty pastel paints, embellish with lacy trims and adhesive gems, and stack
Draw bats on white pumpkins with a permanent marker
Use paper doilies as stencils to create intricate, lacelike designs
You  can download the free templates of these cat and mouse silhouettes

Samantha Lee's Charaben

Food + Art = Charaben. Can anything possibly be more delightful? Kyaraben or charaben (character bento) started when artsy Japanese mothers created cute boxed lunches to encourage their picky kiddos to eat.

Enjoy these adorable creations by Samantha Lee, a SAHM of two from Malaysia. Lee started her whimsical creations to encourage her elder daughter to eat independently. Now, she has more than 280,000 followers on Instagram.
Perfect for Halloween!
