Yummy photos

I would really like someone to invent taste-able photos. Not the kind of thing where you can lick a sticky spot on a page, I wish you could look at a photo and actually experience what it tastes like. Although, involuntarily tasting something really disgusting could be a downside to this. I’m writing my dissertation at the moment and it’s all a bit sci-fi/futuristic, it’s rubbing off. The point of this post isn’t tomorrow’s world technology, it’s photos of yummy things. It’s a bit of a selection of things that I’ve made but haven’t blogged.

Before I went to Spain I made this orange and poppy seed cake, it tasted pretty good.

This next one was a recipe I saw on Cupcakes Always Win (what an awesome name for a blog) and I’m going through a bit of a coconut phase so had to try it. I made one disastrous batch, modified again and then made this one. I changed the recipe slightly as I used gelatine instead of agar flakes as they were about 4 times cheaper and I’m not vegan or vegetarian. So I just poured half a can of coconut milk into a measuring jug, topped it up to one pint with boiling water and added a few spoonfuls of sugar. Gave it a good stir and added a sachet and a half of powdered gelatine, in the fridge for a few hours et voila! I love the layer of coconut cream that rises to the top.

I also made some cookies for my boyfriend to take on his trip away this weekend. His favourite spiced cookie recipe. We saved a few to keep in the cookie jar.

And last but by no means least, my sister made this amazing cricket themed cake for her boyfriend’s birthday. I was in Spain at the time and she had warned me to expect slightly panicky facetimes about this cake, but there was nothing of the sort, she’s a pro! They are her photos too! I’m so proud.
