I have never heard of a funnel cake, but yours looks delicious, and your boyfriends one looks even worse than my manager having two teabags and eight(!!!) sugars.

Also, cross-posting from the today i made thread because I really like the picture:

For those of us always seeking to improve our food Pr0n-O-Vision, Andrew Scrivani at the NYTimes is running a series about food photography on the diner's blog:
http://dinersjournal.blogs.nytimes.com/ ... ting-food/

But honestly, you don't even need a fancy-pants camera to pull something off. Just half a clue about composition and lighting (never ever use flash. Daylight is ideal. Get down close to the food). My friend photographed her southwest guacamole burgers with just a cheapo point-and-shoot:

Oh? Are there no funnel cakes Down Under? Funnel cakes are carnival food. People do not typically make them at home, they are more like a treat for when you go to an amusement park, fair, etc. Of course the people at the fair usually put all kind of delicious fattening stuff on it like whip cream along with the powdered sugar. I think they are very similar to elephant ears.

Those avocados look yummy, btw. If I eat an avocado by itself I usually just add salt, but I think I will try it as a side dish like that.

God. Normally I don't get it when people keep about 576849 varieties of obscure cheese on hand, but sometimes I can see a case for it, like robiola stuffed tomatoes.

I've never liked that fondant "wrap" thing they do with so many contemporary wedding/fancy event cakes, but apart from that, the decoration is spectacular. Throw it on a more traditionally frosted cake and I'd almost have a hard time eating it.

I don't think anyone actually likes the taste of fondant. It just makes it look pretty. It's fine with me, as you can just eat around it (although it seems like a waste).

I didn't even mean the taste, though; I don't like the way it looks. Too sterile, too plastic. Rarely, for the right cake design, it works, but usually the style puts me off.

I made these for a Christmas party. The first cookie, of course, is chocolate chip, using the tried and true Nestle Toll House recipe. The second kind is my great-grandmother's oatmeal raising cookie recipe. They're my absolute favorite cookie in the world. The third and final cookie is peanut butter, which comes from a recipe my mother got from a jar of Jif peanut butter many years ago.

Yes, there's a lamp behind the bottle. As for the liquid's color - it's supposed to be darker. Real vanilla extract in tiny bottles is also dark, as is vanilla-flavored extract (not using real vanilla beans).
