Tuesday is for tasty tidbits on your telemetric taste buds!
◊ LET THEM EAT CAKE!
I opted to open with this picture for all my Whovian readers, but, man, if this isn’t my favorite cake of recent memory. The Weeping Angels just make me so happy (while, of course, terrifying me), and this cake version by Mike’s Amazing Cakes is, well, amazing! Click the links or the picture to see more detailed shots.
This Hello Kitty Terminator cake is pretty darn awesome! I love all the detail. Speaking of detail, you can check out Between The Pages for a ton of pictures of this cake by Laura from El Laboratorio de las Tartas (do it, do it!).
◊ SHOULD YOU BAKE A CAKE?
◊ KITCHEN ACCESSORIES.
This Splash Red chopping board by Mustard would be great fun at Hallowe’en (though I have to say it looks a bit like ketchup with those tomatoes…).
I wouldn’t mind having this Doctor Who silicone tray (also from ThinkGeek). Who knows? Maybe I’d make Dalek cakes and chocolate TARDISes (TARDISi?) for Christmas. Or just ice cubes to send to people. Via.

◊ FOOD THOUGHTS.
Not with Jack Handey.
Wini Moranville’s 8 insights gleaned from her French kitchen. Fascinating observations gathered from renting vacation apartments in France for 20 years.
Another French food bit: “WikiPearls are small balls of ice cream (it could be any food or beverage, really, especially if they’re tough to handle) that are covered in an edible protective membrane—this ‘skin’ is comparable to a grape or human cell.”
7 secrets to being a great dinner guest. (I really need to remember secret #5!)
◊ DRINK UP!
From How Sweet It Is: Caramelized Pineapple Lassi (non-alcoholic, even).
From Thug Kitchen: Cold Brewed Coffee (ditto).
From Everyday Food: Pimm’s Cup (not so much with the non-alcohol, but I’d like to try one of these).
From Joy the Baker: Watermelon Strawberry Citrus Sangria (I really like those glasses, pictured at left).
◊ THAT’S THE WAY THE COOKIE CRUMBLES.
