Supersize me: burger cake edition

Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!

"Look! Up in the sky!"

"It's a bird!"

"It's a plane!"

"No, It's a giant-super-burger-cake-that-would-totally-feature-on-epic-mealtime-had-I-put-any-bacon-on-it!"

I will let the pictures do the (majority) rest of the talking, but I do promise you this burger has some strange qualities that can help you leap tall buildings in a single bound. I'm sure this burger could if you threw it hard enough :)

Bento Box: Walrus(es Law)

The title of this post is dedicated to all those Economists out there... you know who you are!

(It's something called Walras' Law, which says that excess supply in one market must be matched by excess demand in another so it balances out. Kind of like Ying-Yang. Kind of not.)

And to any budding Economists out there (you know who you are!) I challenge you to make this bento box before you apply for an Economics degree, see how dedicated you are ;)

Summer Sunshine

Christophe Roussel macarons in Paris

I'm not dead! I was just very busy... (it's practically the same thing).

I've now finished my internship, and am now back home for a few weeks before I go back to uni for my very last year (sob). So, I have some exciting things to post in very soon, watch out for:

- I've got a new bento box! (i.e. a new bento post to come)
- My guest post for Jill Colona from Mad About Macarons! (Yes, the very one)
- A little giveaway and info about Le Cordon Bleu cookery school
- Um. Cakes. Lots of them.

And as to The Internship, unfortunately I didn't get the offer from the investment bank but I'll be doing grad applications until I physically cannot type anymore (or get RSI, whichever comes first). If... you know anyone from an investment bank in equities sales who may be able to get me an interview, I will bake you the most MASSIVE TASTY YUMMYLICIOUS cake you could ever want. Ever. And I'll teach you how to solve the Rubik's cube too...

It's really an offer you can't refuse.

But before I leave to go bake/cook for my next post, I'll leave with some photos from various places I've been/things I've done this summer.
