Sugar High Friday #26: Sugar Art
This month, I am hosting Sugar High Friday, a traveling event that was originally created by Jennifer of The Domestic Goddess. Last month, Johanna of The Passionate Cook had the wonderful idea of inviting us all to make chocolate truffles, and oh, my, did everyone produce some tasty looking treats.
In fact, they were so beautiful that I feel very confident in my choice for December’s theme, Sugar High Friday #26: Sugar Art.
It’s time for the holidays, so let’s decorate the internet with our beautiful creations! You don’t have to do any complicated or fancy pulled sugar or sculpted marzipan – just make us a dessert that you think is cute or pretty or just plain fun to look at, and I’ll be impressed and pleased as can be. If you want to blow swans made of hollow sugar, go right ahead, but marzipan kitties, throwing a few toys among your cookies, or even the beauty of a sprinkling of powdered sugar meets this theme just as well. So rev up all that creative energy, remember how you used to do arts and crafts as a kid, and let’s play!
You do not have to be a great photographer – or even a photographer at all – in order to participate this month. If you don’t want to use a photo, feel free to describe in words what makes your dessert fun to look at, or the techniques you used to make food into art.
Now, the rules:
Your post must go up by Friday, December 29, 2006!
Don’t forget to mention and link to this announcement in your post and if you can, also include a link to the round-up once it is up.
Send an email with the following information to habeasbrulee-AT-gmail-DOT-com:
Your blog’s name
Your blog’s URL (homepage)
The title of your entry
Your entry’s permalink (individual URL)
Since the deadline is right in the midst of the holidays (in fact, it’s 4 days before my birthday), I won’t have the time to scour the internet searching for your entries – you must email me to notify me of them by the 29th!
If you don’t have a blog, send me your picture and write-up anyway, but be sure to do so as far in advance as possible so that I can publish it before the 29th.
