Le Voyage Dans la Lune Recreated In Cake Frosting

trip-to-the-moon

If you’ve never seen Le Voyage Dans la Lune (A Trip to the Moon), it’s probably because it was a movie made well over one-hundred years ago, and contains no superheroes or hobbits.

Either way, to pay homage to the film and the anniversary of the actual first moon landing, Henry Hargreaves recreated the iconic last scene of Le Voyage in cake frosting.

With the help of frosting model Amirah Kassem from Flour Shop, Hargreaves brings us the moon landing scene via animated gif, which matches the choppy pace of the movie perfectly.

Coffee Cup Art Left Behind For Others To Find

Starting the day off with coffee is good. Add some coffee cup art to the mix and suddenly your morning is a little bit more tolerable.

If you’re lucky enough to frequent the same coffee shop as artist Jimmy T., you could have that super-morning. Jimmy creates illustrations on takeaway coffee cups, and then leaves them behind for patrons of the shop to find.

Of course, this isn’t before Jimmy documents the drawings on his Tumblr blog, Morning Coffee Cup Art, where you can see his ongoing series.

Cappuccino Potato Chips Exist

Since you’re probably going to eat potato chips for breakfast anyway… Cappuccino Potato Chips now exist.

Part of Lay’s Do Us A Flavor campaign, where they crowdsource ideas for new chip varieties, the coffee chips are part of an experiment including Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese, Mango Salsa, and Wasabi Ginger. Voting to decide the official new flavor starts in 12 days.

Great… But can we get the cappuccino chips in half-caf, two-pump, extra-foam, mocha-choca? Asking for a friend.
