This year his attempted to bake his own birthday cake with my help. Doggie boy loves eating  Oreo cheesecakes and we decided that we would bake a  Oreo Chocolate cheesecake together.

The kids were famish after their morning play and I brought them out for lunch at Streets cafe. They were happily drawing in their notebooks while waiting for the food to be served.

After lunch it was off to the pool again for more fun play at the wave pool and water slides.

How do your kids celebrate their birthdays?

Foam Art and Food Styling

I’ve always been fascinated by Foam  Art and loved seeing all the different designs in the coffee cup when R and I dine out. It certainly perks one up and brightens up the day being presented with a cute picture in a cup during breakfast.

I’m not a coffee drinker and would only order tea  or juices to drink . R on the other hand does drink coffee and it is interesting to see what designs come with the breakfast set we order.

It was interesting to see that it was possible to do Foam Art on other drinks like Hot chocolate. This design of a pop up fox with the word “HEY” at the bottom was really cute. The kids didn’t want to drink it as it would “spoil” the art.

Food placement does wonders in enhancing the desirability of a dish. The way the food is arrange can either whet ones appetite or squash ones desire for the dish.

This BBQ ribs looked visually appealing however the taste is much to be desired. It was rather hard and dry.  Appearance was certainly fooling for this dish.

Are you into  visually attractive foods
and drinks too?
