Spray Cake

Newly available: cake in a spray can. Just spray, microwave, and eat.

But, of course, you'll also need some spray can frosting. That's already been available for a couple of years.

Toaster Selfie

Taking the selfie phenomenon to a new level of absurdity, the Toaster Selfie allows you to print images of your own face on pieces of toast. Just send the company a hi-rez photo of your face and they'll create a custom-made toaster selfie for you. []

Chirps Cricket Chips

Available now for pre-order. They're chips made of cricket flour. I'd be willing to try them because from what I've heard crickets don't taste bad at all. And if they don't look anything like crickets, all the better! Though I have a hard time imagining these will ever go mainstream.

Ham Banana Rolls

Recipe from the Dec 1947 issue of Woman's Day, via Retro-Rama Mama.

The Retro Recipe Attempts blog decided to make the thing, and their verdict was that "it actually wasn’t as bad as you’d expect from ham stuffed with a mustardy banana. If you got a bite with a good distribution of banana, ham, mustard, and cheese, the flavors almost worked. ALMOST. (If you got a bite with just banana and American cheese, well, barf.)"

Charcoal Cheese

Cheese mixed with charcoal. Looks strange, but apparently tastes pretty good. [Sleaford Target]

Rabbit Pizza

New Zealand's Hell Pizza is introducing rabbit pizza just in time for Easter. And they're advertising it with billboards covered in rabbit skins. To make the pizza, they combine the rabbit meat with spiced beetroot and horopito relish, and then add pine nuts and cream cheese as toppings. Hell Pizza says it's a "beautiful subtle flavor". []

Vegan Art

Austria-based artist Anamaria Finta went vegan two years ago. And for some reason that change inspired her to start making art out of her food.

A lot of her art pieces seem to rely heavily on cream cheese and yogurt, both of which (last time I checked) aren't vegan. So I'm assuming she must use vegan substitutes for these.

So actually, I'm not sure what her art has to do with veganism at all. But it is nice food art. [via]
