Food Design Ideas


Having spent almost a week in Tokyo, my eyes are now attuned to look out for creative things (because the Japanese are great with inventing).

I have a new found appreciation for art and pretty packages that I admit, as of this point has yet to delve beyond the superficial, but I believe it would someday.

That is why I’m going to share with you what caught my attention while I was surfing the Net today.

And with the exception of one, these are not from Japan. Although I won’t be surprised if someone finds them there.

Cookie Cup. The cup is made of pastry covered with a special icing sugar, which works as an insulator, and makes the cup waterproof hence allowing you to use the cup and then appreciate its taste.

I didn’t know anything about food design until I found this picture. Apparently after you’ve drank the coffee, you can eat the cup. It’s like an ice-cream except it’s hot. Talk about leaving no waste behind.

Sugar Heart

These are probably quite common but I have never seen them! If anyone knows how to make them, please share the recipe! Otherwise, as of now, you can buy them here.

Impressionist Cake

This is such a work of art although I’m not sure if it’s actually edible!

iPhone Cookie

Now this iCookie is designed by a Japanese bakery called Green Gables. I’m curious though, if someone from Singapore can bake this, would it be sold out?
