If you’re one who enjoys a milkshake with your meal, then you’ll probably have no problem with a meal right on top of your milkshake. It’ll save a plate.

Apparently, there’s a trend of extreme milkshakes in Sydney, Australia — where restaurants, cafés, and ice cream shops vie for gut-busting and gravity defying supremacy.

Photographer Alana Dimou wants in on the trend, and has created a few extreme milkshakes of her own. From S’mores Chicken to a towering Bacon Cheeseburger atop a mason jar, it’s up to the viewer to not only ask, “why?” but then try to figure out how one would consume such a monstrosity.

Pixar Pancakes Are Fun For The Whole Family

If you’re looking for a breakfast that appeals to kids and adults, and is a little too pretty to eat, look no further than these Pixar Pancakes.

Brought to us by Dan Drake of Dan Cakes, he creates colorful and scary-accurate pancake portraits of some of our favorite Pixar characters.

There’s Toy Story, A Bug’s Life, Up, and even Cars. Then, since Dan apparently has some extra batter, he creates a bunch of obscure secondary characters. Please watch this…

There’s a Pop-Tart Beer Now

As beer inches closer to becoming a socially acceptable breakfast, a Pop-Tart-inspired beer makes perfect sense.

Created by 21st Amendment Brewery, Toaster Pastry India Style Red Ale will help get the day started. Although a 7.6% ABV and 74 IBU isn’t terribly morning-friendly — it’s nothing some extra frosting and sprinkles can’t fix.

The Toaster Pastry beer will be released on August 29th, as part of 21st Amendment’s launch of their new brew facility in San Leandro, CA.

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).

The best part, if there needs to be one, is that the cupcake wrapper is edible nori. Actually, this look kinda awesome. Want.
