July 8, 2010


OK, so this is kind of weird- but I wanted to see if the Cricut Cake would cut out bologna & cheese. In other words, something very different from the Fondant and Frosting Sheets that I’d tried out previously. The good news- cutting bologna and pre-wrapped cheese slices (such a Kraft Singles) proved to be […]

Playing with Your Food- Food as Art Material

January 14, 2008


This takes the phrase “Playing with your food” to a whole new place. There is a South Korean artist, Sang Wook Lee who sculpts- with all things- Ramen Noodles.
