Wearable Goodies

I always knew that my life was missing something, and after visiting Michael’s flickr: MossyOwls, that was confirmed. Not only is Michael a talented photographer and polymer clay artist, but the items she creates are good enough to eat. Just check out her items yourself: flickr or Etsy.

Polymer desserts
From ice cream sandwiches, to cupcakes, biscotti, to Pop-tarts, Michael has definitely got a handle on things. Every work of art she creates is hand crafted and made with care. The detail on these wearable goodies are astonishing; she’s got holes in the Pop-tarts, unevenly sprinkled sprinkles on cupcakes and cookies, perfectly dipped biscotti, and designs on the icing ribbons. Although every piece looks good enough to eat, I’d strongly advise against eating them, for they’re made of polymer clay – too bad for us.

Michael’s hobby has made it possible for us to wear our favourite treats wherever we go. From school to work, you’ll be the sweetest cool cat around.

Make sure to check out her two online shops: Mossy Owl’s Polymer Clay Jewelry, Beads & More and Mossy Owl’s Button Bakery.


A Multitude of Sins

December 4, 2008

“I’ve never given much thought to how I would die, but dying in place of all things sweet seems like a good way to go.” – Twilight

Last weekend, I went to Silver City at Metropolis and watched Twilight.  As the film started to roll, I listened to Bella’s voice and it got me thinking about death. No – not the agonizing, and emotional passing of someone, but rather the opposite – it got me thinking about Death By Chocolate.

Death By Chocolate was first established in New Zealand in 1991, and is self proclaimed “The Ultimate Dessert Destination”. And in fact, I quite agree. Death By Chocolate is a dessert lover’s dream. They serve up delicious treats that appeal to all the senses. With every plate comes inspiration and dreams.

My chocolate covered Latin Lover
The last time I went, I got myself a nice big slice of chocolate cake. Too big for me, I only finished half and still ended up having a tooth ache for weeks after. Upon visiting their website for the first time, I explored and to my delight, I found an online menu. Page after page, I feasted my eyes on sweet baked goods. I drooled over “Fudged Out” and “Devil In Disguise”. I yearned for the “Latin Lover”, and I wished to taste “A Multitude of Sins”.

Specialty coffees, wines, and liquors are served to compliment your fun and flirty dessert. So with over 30 dessert choices, and many refreshments to choose from, you can pick your poison and your coffin too!
