A site called Playing By The Book recently held an Edible Book festival and invited entries from the world over. Now in case any of you are wondering what an edible book is…well…it’s an edible creation inspired by a book.
Now that you have inspiration for a chocolatey Icky, Yucky, Mucky cake and some Maharaja Moochh cupcakes that we posted earlier, you might want to start planning your very own Icky, Yucky, Mucky birthday or tea party! And if you need some ideas for activities, you can browse through our Yucky Art, Icky recipes and let your imagination go wild. We in the meantime are working on some more wonderfully messy ideas!
The cake shown was created by Raashi Malhotra Sawhney of the Picnik Basket in Mumbai. To order yourself one and for other yummy ready to serve food, desserts and confectionery, contact her on 9987687005, 9321954055, email@example.com.
An afternoon of whipping up cupcake batter turned into an Icky baking session when it was time to ice the cupcakes! For batter and butter makes for one messy session!
We turned out Maharaja Moochh cupcakes and the boys were so thrilled to munch away on the moustaches.
The girls decided to do a bit messier version of fairy cupcakes and make do for the moment till we get around to a nibbly Maharani cupcake…though those crescent things on top could be nibbled off nails instead of fairy wings!
Calling all parents and children to get inspired, get baking and icing and get clicking. Send us pictures of your creations that are Icky, Yucky, or Mucky to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be thrilled to put them up on this blog!
It has been a while since we put a post up about an Icky recipe. Well, the Maharaja’s hungry now! So do you love to stuff your face with roti like Maharaja Icky? Here’s an easy way to make a great oozy, crunchy snack and stuff your face silly.
What you need to get started:
One cooked chapatti (have an adult do this for you)
Tamarind chutney / Tomato ketchup
Teaspoon of chopped coriander
Place the chapatti on a plate and spread two spoonfuls of the chutney or ketchup in a broad line along the centre of the roti.
Sprinkle on aloo bhujia on top of the chutney. You can put however much you like.
Add on the chopped coriander and roll the roti up.
Wrap a tissue around it and chomp away. On second thoughts, forget the tissue…its Icky time!
