2010 Eating Your Words Challenge :

I love food challenges so when I first heard about this challenge from one of the organisers, @TangledNoodle, I was indeed intrigued. I was very much interested in joining but had no idea on what to do.

Savor the Thyme and Tangled Noodle have organised "Eating your Words" Challenge, where you have to write, spell or draw using food or drink.  Then blog about it.  They even managed to recruit a very famous foodie and TV personality as a judge.  Andrew Zimmern

For a whole month, I agonised about what to do.  I even asked for advice from a number of people.  I thought about it so much I actually dreamt that I met Andrew Zimmern!

So, this is what I have come up with.

Eat your words

This was a very simple project but then factor in having only one day to bake, create, photograph and blog while having a 7 month old and a 3 year old both craving for my attention.  I didn't think I was able to complete it on time...  but here it is.

I chose my favourite fudgey chocolate cake recipe and chocolate icing.

I cut out the letters and used as a template to cut out the cake

I found this project challenging and I'm glad that I found the time to join in.  Looking forward to next year's challenge.

Bon Appetite,

I missed out on this as there were just too many things happening but I hope I can join the next one. The chocolate looks sooooo rich and delicious!!!

If this cake were left in my company, it would read, "W-O" only. The other letters would be long gone . . . [burp].

This such a great (and chocalate-y sweet) entry! Thank you for joining us in Eating Your Words - in this case, quite literally!

Congrats on making the challenge, I almost couldn't make mine either with all the mommy duties. (That's why I was up so late.) Now which letter to pick, the W of the D? I'd like the biggest piece/letter please but not the S--you already bit into it! hehe :)
