DIY Ice-Cream Parlour "Make your own Sundaes" Buffet Concept for a Wedding or Party | September 01, 2009

 

DIY Ice-Cream Parlour "Make your own Sundaes" Buffet

DIY Ice-Cream Parlour "Make your own Sundaes" Buffet

I am lactose intolerant. This probably explains my unhealthy obsession with ice-cream. My favourite dessert is nothing fancier or more sophisticated than a simple Ice-cream Sundae. Nothing satisfies my sweet palate more than vanilla ice-cream with hot fudge sauce, whipped cream, crushed nuts, caramelised banana, wafer biscuit and the all-important cherry on top!

Despite evidence to the contrary (what is with this crazy Melbourne weather?!), warmer months are just around the corner down here in Oz and I've got ice-cream on the brain! So I came up with a design concept for an old-fashioned Ice-cream Parlour "Make your own Sundaes" buffet with all the accoutrements. Read on for more pics, ideas and freebies to help you with your own ice-cream parlour buffet for your party, kids party or even wedding.

Stylish Japanese Food | July 14, 2009

Banana Granola

I seem to have developed a fascination with all things Japanese ever since stumbling, recently, upon a Japanese Food Mart nearby and foraging through all their treasures so when I discovered ii-ne-kore - an awesome blog about Japanese design-  I was thrilled! One post in particular grabbed my attention- the stunning food photography in this flickr stream by Bananagranola. Gotta love the Japanese food aesthetic.
