And now for something different... sort of...

So since I am not baking much these days because I can't taste most batters and I can't eat most finished products if they contain butter or other saturated fats, which is a pretty sure thing in most tasty baking, I thought I'd do a post about fun kitchen paraphernalia that I find sometimes while I browse. I'll probably be doing more posts like these in the near future rather than baked goods, just so my blog doesn't consist entirely of Daring Baker Challenges like it has for the past few months.
I found this on British/Japanese designer Reiko Kaneko's website.It's made by Blaue Blume (I'd never heard of them before so I wouldn't be surprised if you haven't either) and I think it's hilarious, although I'm not sure I would actually purchase them for my own kitchen or serving purposes. I think it'd freak out the kids of the family a little too much and there's a certain whiff of Morticia Addams about them, especially the cake stand. I think if I did purchase them they would be brought out for events like Halloween.




I think you get the idea. Something else they had on reikokaneko.co.uk was an egg cup made of little soldiers, like tin soldiers fighting around it. I couldn't copy the picture for some reason so here's the link to that page. That is actually a Reiko Kaneko design, not Blaue Blume. If I had small boys I would get some of those. I won't say I'm a huge fan of having all sorts of ridiculous or playful things in the kitchen but I do love the odd child-like thing here and there, just to remind me not to take things too seriously. Sometimes the odd child-like paraphernalia also makes things taste better, inexplicably...
