World’s First ‘Edible’ Cookbook

German design agency Korefe has created the first edible cookbook that you can read (if you can read German that is), cook and eat!

This innovative approach transcends the essence of a cookbook by reinventing the experience of cooking altogether. It creates a fun experience where readers are guided through the process of cooking up a classic lasagne where the cookbook plays an essential part as one of the main ingredients. The pages themselves are made from fresh pasta and are used as sheets in the lasagne itself, once you pop it in the oven there is no turning back! Out “hopefully” comes a fully cooked, edible lasagne cookbook, hopefully readers will remember the recipe 😉

‘The Real Cookbook’ is a special edition from the Gerstenberg Publishing House, specialists in high-quality culinary and art books. As far as availability it is to my understanding that no supermarkets or book stores will be selling this however they definitely should consider it! Wonder what other fun recipes we would be able to cook up!


“Hungry Eyes” By Burger King

The latest Burger King ad campaign in the Netherlands is quite a departure from the more traditional burger and bun ads that we are used to seeing. An unknown makeup artist was hired to create the striking hamburger inspired eyeshadow combo.

The campaign is definitely memorable and reminds me of the “Hungry Eyes” song for the Dirty Dancing soundtrack, the question is will these types of ads garner more hamburger enthusiasts? Typically most women who take care of their figures attempt to stay away from this sort of junk food, so this begs to question who exactly is this campaign aimed at?

Nonetheless it will be interesting to see if this kicks of an eyeshadow trend and give the latest nail art craze a run for its money.

Pantone Inspired Tarts Anyone?

Although I can imagine anyone eating these at an art museum or design related event, these pantone inspired colour swatch tarts were created for a feature in french culinary magazine fricote, by french food designer Emilie de Griottes. These fantastic tart based delicacies range from having berries, carrots, lemon and other fruits to replicate the pantone colour it is meant to represent. The magazine has included the recipe so any avid foodie can recreate these works of art for themselves: fricote issue number 6 (2012). Overall I love how Emilie has taken pantone swatching to the next level not only is this fun, its tasty and creative!

Fashion Inspired Wedding Cakes

Creating one of the most important day in a woman’s life can be stressful to say the least (trust me I know!) its the details that make your day unique and say a lot about you and your future hubby. Perhaps some decisions are easier than what you think? While browsing for wedding cakes I stumbled across an interesting post by Belle the Magazine on fashion inspired wedding cakes. Who knew that your wedding cake inspiration could be staring you right in the eye each and every time you put on THE dress. Below are some of my favorite wedding cake fashion interpretations!
