Some tasty tidbits for you.
◊ KIT KAT CAKE!
I have a real weakness for Kit Kats, but I’m convinced that the plentiful strawberries on top of this Kit Kate cake make it a healthy option. So it’s okay to just throw my face into it, right? Right?

From How Sweet It Is: Boozy Watermelon Granitas with Coconut Whipped Cream (it’s really the coconut whipped cream I want to try).
From That’s Nerdalicious: Zelda’s Lullaby cocktail (with video).
Well, this is different (from That’s Nerdalicious):
Next month Châteaux en Bordeaux’s Hausmann Famille will debut Coca-Cola flavored wine called “Rouge Sucette” (‘Red Lollipop’) across France. The new booze will be 9% ABV and will consist of 75% wine and 25% sugar, water, and soda flavoring. Apparently the move is part of an effort by France’s wine industry, who is struggling to capture a younger generation who is “more attracted to beer and spirits”.
◊ THE KITCHEN WITCH.
Dana Staves examines the archetype of the Kitchen Witch in a number of films, including Waitress, Practical Magic, Like Water for Chocolate, Simply Irresistible, Chocolat, and Stranger than Fiction.
◊ BREAKFAST TACO.
I think I need more breakfast tacos in my life.
◊ LET THEM EAT CAKE!
Charm City Cakes‘ children’s books cake is pretty special. Can you name all of these characters?
◊ AND LET THEM EAT CUPCAKES, TOO!
◊ THAT’S THE WAY THE COOKIE CRUMBLES.
I’m impressed with the detail on these Avengers cookies by Honeycat Cookies—and, even though he’s not shown in this picture, Hawkeye got his own cookie, too. But where’s Black Widow? More photos at Between the Pages.
And I love these cookies—they look like little paintings on those easels. Click through to see more cookies in the Musicians series, as well as several close-up shots.
