Star Wars + Cupcakes + LEGOs = Happy Buddha. You probably already realized this a few weeks ago when a great Star Wars Cupcake photo flickered across my stream. This time we can thank Rachel Manning and her eye-candy littered Flickr stream for this amazing doozey. Yes folks, those cupcake minifigs [what you might call the little lego action figures] are all concocted from edible material despite their amazing resemblance to the plastic versions. I have several of these minifigs in and around my house and I had to do a double take when I stumbled upon this here picture. In what can only be considered some cruel joke of fate beyond my control … Manning lives in the UK, so no ordering this stuff for us, but nonetheless – it’s awesome to look at. Take some time to check out her flickr stream and her facebook page!
Though a skilled cake decorator who does things other than fulfill young boys dreams, check out that bad ass Lego Star Wars Millenium Falcon wedding cake, replete with some very detailed cake-based minifigs of Han, Princess Leia, and R2-D2. Meanwhile, I am pretty sure I just setup my nephew for a tearful day when I sent his mother a picture of Rachel’s Lots-O-Huggin Bear cake. If she thinks better of it, she’ll withhold the picture as it will sure as shit make the little rascal green with envy. Manning’s work is a pleasant cacophony of joyful baked goods!
Like every other Atlanta foodie, a short while back I dropped in the food Mecca that is New York. It was an ungodly trip of lusty, slutty, completely inappropriate foodie indulgence and I’m just now getting my thoughts organized and my photos online. I’ve long talked of my man love for Sotohiro Kosugi. The guy artist super hero is now up to two Michelin Stars. I think eating at Soto every time you (or me for that matter) hit NYC would be a good thing. For space’s sake, I was not able to include all the pictures; however, you can find the full Soto New York picture set on Flickr. Without further adieu, Soto Sushi in in pictures #Amazing #BeJealous #LetsGetItOn
My days are pretty underwhelming and more often than not, I find myself quietly minding my own business. Such was the case last Thursday when things started off much the same. I got up … showered … got some work done … and set off to go sit quietly and ponder my life’s work and all that has happened up until now.
Yes, that is indeed me sitting quietly alone and drifting in and out of a contemplative state. While I was certain that I was one with the environment, out of the blue, I found myself stalked by Mark Petko, a paparazzo with a predilection for food.
As I absconded throughout our fine city, I found myself unable to shake my tail. After hours of dining and dashing, I relented and extended an invite back to my Zen like palace. Petko, being the fastidious man he is, sneakily shot me for the better part of an afternoon.
Personally, I thought I was as non-descript as the next dude wearing a sumo suit, but yet … Petko found me. Alas Atlanta, the Foodie Buddha has been unveiled (sort of)!
No, I haven’t fallen in or anything. While I’ve still been eating out the past couple of weeks, most of my writing time has been devoted to … gasp … COOKING!!! Mmmm …
So sit tight, I’ll be back soon and in the meantime, enjoy this little number! I have no idea where to buy such a wonderful apparatus.
Total luck as this was cropped from the background of one of my shots! Truly awesome! Who are you mysterious lover of the popsicle? Yes, this mysterious man of popsicle orgies might as well have been a plant, because if this doesn’t show a true love of The King of Pops, I don’t know what does!
Little could pull me away from my television on this day of “Win and You’re In.” However, 10-year-old Grace … who rocks it with her parents in Morningside, did just that. Apparently, the young fan of Top Chef took a trip to Woodfire Grill this past evening. Ya’ll know that’s where Kevin Gillespie hides out and cooks up hella killer food. Anywho (I love that non-word), after enjoyed her tasting menu meal, the young foodie in the making presented chef Gillespie with a little treat.
To show her support for ATLs last man standing … she put together one hell of a collage, complete with a fantastic little poem that basically says: SUCK IT VOLTAGGIOS, but in super nice and cute terms. ENJOY! Grace, if you’re out there … please contact me!! (for serious!!!)
I love learning … and I love it when there are lots of pictures to make the reading more enjoyable. Thanks to some very crafty folk over at the Oatmeal, we now have a picture-book-like lesson on all things beer! It’s really one big long comic, so keep on clicking to see it!
