Rainbow heart cake, luscious hot chocolate and mall pretzels are top blog posts this week
Monday 22 August 2011
A photo of a cheerful, whimsical cake that slices into a heart and is layered in the kaleidoscope colors of the rainbow, as well as an easy, how-to video on mall pretzels are some of the top food posts of the week.
Photos that generated the most activity on Tumblr.com this week include a rainbow heart cake originally posted on Bakingdom.com, a prismatic and labor-intensive cake reminiscent of childhood characters like the Care Bears and the Wizard of Oz).
As of August 22, 12:30 GMT, images of the finished product have generated 1,023 notes - meaning the number of times it's been reblogged, 'liked' by fellow Tumblrs, or generated comments - since the photo was first uploaded August 19 and posted by blogger justbesplendid.
Meanwhile, a how-to video from elephantine.com posted by Gastrogirl, which has been reblogged 1,054 times, shows viewers how to make mall pretzels. The surprising step, and perhaps the secret to making the pretzel soft and chewy, involves dipping the dough in a solution of water and baking soda before popping it in the oven.
