I love to bake. I do it all the time instead of buying sweets and breads for my family. I'm equally addicted to scouring the internet for cool ways to make somewhat plain treats quirkier and more interesting. Today, I'll share with you my top ten cutest ideas and maybe a few quick how-to's to make them yourselves.
Take the Rubbiks Cube for instance. Choose three or four different foods and cut them into 36 equal squares then stack them into three layers of twelve squares. Voila, one cute but nerdy meal to grace your dinner table!
Cut a small hole in the top of a watermelon and empty and entire bottle of vodka or liquor of your choice into it. Plug the hole and refrigerate over night. The next day you can cut it into delicious juicy, fruity, alcoholic slices that'll liven up any summer get together!
Or - Pick a small fruit like strawberries and hollow out the middle. Mix up or buy your favorite mousse/custard/ice cream/cheesecake mix and spoon into a piping bag. Pipe your cream concoction into the center of your hollowed out fruit and stick in the fridge or freezer till set again then enjoy a delicious fruity treat!
And how about these cuties? Nothing says pretty as a princess as a crystal bowl filled with delicate rose shaped cookies. You can do this with any kind of cookie dough so long as it's a little runny but still holds it's shape and there aren't any lumps in it. Simply fill a piping bag with your cookie mixture and pipe into the desired shape. Let it sit for a while to form a slight crust so it doesn't collapse at the first sign of heat then smack it in the oven for the required time and voila! You could do this with pavlova mix to make little crunchy pavlova biscuits. You could do this with anything really, it's all up to your imagination!
