Look Closely

I’ve been eating very simply lately, so this post is brought to you by my very talented and creative aunt. I believe she made these tricky treats for Halloween.

TV Dinner for Two?




These mashed potatoes, peas and carrots, and fried chicken are really cupcakes! Aren’t they the cutest things ever?!! The mashed potato cupcakes are topped with yellow starburst candy and caramel, the peas and carrots are m&m’s and starburst, and the fried chicken breading is crushed cornflakes. I think they are quite impressive. Her inspiration came from this recipe.

Anyone motivated to make a cupcake Thanksgiving buffet?

These cupcakes are messing with my mind! One side of my brain is all hungry for dessert when I see them, and then I start hankering for mashed potatoes and gravy! THE CONFUSION!

Wonderfully done. Though, I'm having a hard time believing that those mashed potatoes aren't really mashed potatoes.

Food creativity, gotta love it.

those cuppies are just too awesome, Diann! your aunt is super creative & talented, indeed! i would have never thought to do something like that - or have the ability to pull it off, too. wow!

we've been eating really simple foods lately, too. the fall produce is so delicious on its own we've been enjoying squashes, rice, beans, and sauteed veggies. easy & simple, but oh-so awesome.

i hope your weekend is super stellar! :)
