Sushi Cupcakes Exist Because Japan


Here’s proof, that if you allow a food trend to hang around long enough, stuff like Sushi Cupcakes is bound to happen. We only have ourselves to blame.

Brought to us by Mosogourmet, the ‘cupcakes’ are made by forming raw fish and rice into temarizushi (sushi balls).

An Anchorman-Themed Baby Shower Works Every Time


Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is one of the most quotable and thoroughly awesome comedies ever. So, when our good friend Aarti Mahtani Raman of AMR Catering was commissioned for an Anchorman-themed baby shower, she created a series of treats that are sort of a big deal.

Borrowing from Anchorman’s quote arsenal, Aarti used them as inspiration for her baked goods. From Butterscotch Blondie Bars — inspired by Ron Burgundy’s proclamation of scotch-love — to Sex Panther Cake Pops that are made from bits of brownie, so you know they’re good.

See more from the series below. And remember… milk is a good choice.
