What better excuse for a blog party, I hear you cry? No better excuse! None at all!
Here's the deal.
I am, despite gravest misgivings, hosting my very first blog event. (At this point I will say, please participate, or I will cry and feel a fool) (Not really) (Well, maybe really). Between now and the 8th of August, I'd love it if anyone who wanted to be involved blogged something fitting the below criteria and emailed me with it, for a roundup on the 9th of August.
My real-life party is extreme fancy dress; imagine a charmingly whimsical (albeit probably with a macabre edge, because I am really a sadist) Wonderland, if Wonderland tripped down Harajuku Street, bounced between Oz a couple of times, circled Disneyland Castle, detoured through the Sixties and ended up in Noel Fielding's wardrobe.
(When describing this to my friend, she gave me a long look at this point and said slowly, '...so basically, you're having an LSD themed party?' Er, yes. Thankyou, Alison).
Anyway, I'd love to have food to fit this theme-in-inverted-commas, and since I have exhausted all my imagination on the above
drug trip plan, this is where you come in. The criteria are:
- It must be food that I can serve at a party, since I'd love to try your recipes for the real thing.
- The theme is anything whimsical, weird and wonderful (WWW, since this is my online party. Ohoho. Sorry, I'll stop making jokes).
- Think trompe d'oeil food, layers, spirals, food on sticks , bright colours &c. &c.
- Entries can be sweet or savoury, and in any measurements (I can translate pretty quickly now)
Once you've blogged your entry (including a link to this post, please), email the following to outoftheblue.x[at]hotmail[dot]co[dot]uk with 'Welcome To Wonderland' as the title:
- Your name and location
- Blog name and URL
- Post URL
- Name of entry
If you don't have a blog, just email me your name, the recipe and a picture and I'll include it in the roundup.
For more ideas of the kind of thing I'm planning, check out a couple more links - something like this would be suitably random, these are ridiculously impressive, Bakerella should just cater for me already, and I am one billion percent making these.
Really hoping to hear from you!!
