I like to do the pretty food but my seems to lose something in translation, especially my efforts at cake decorating. LOL.

I saw another recipe not long ago for "sandwich cookies". It looks a little fussy, but would be nice for a special occasion.

Basically, you just form your cookie balls into what looks like a tiny slice of bread, and make an indentation in the middle part. Then you cook them part-way, add a little dollop of fruit preserves, and finish cooking. They come out looking like little toasts with spread.

Qualifies as "cute food" for me! =D

I bet several of our creative members could come up with a healthy version.

Yes! I was envisioning all sorts of pretty treat-type concoctions! That's why I posted it, I figured all the creative minds here could find plenty of applications for it.

Your "dirt cake" sounds great! I have a recipe for (I know it sounds gross!) "Kitty Litter Cake", and it's a real hoot. It looks so real, many people just stand back and stare and won't even try it! LOL It's delicious, too. Not low-carb nor GF, however. I suppose it could be adapted some sort of way. It's "messy" enough that the lack of rise, etc between a LC version and the original wouldn't affect the look, I think.

I really like visually appealing food. Especially if they're fun!

Exotec, I know this is off low carb and off subject, but wouldn't that be a novelty to bake a cake for someone (probably a bundt cake recipe would work) in a flower pot, then just frost it and put the "dirt" over the top and stick some flowers in it for someone's birthday or Easter or a special occasion.

I did a dirt cake for a couple of granddaughters (they both wanted one) a few years ago with gummie worms and using crushed Oreo cookies for the dirt. They absolutely loved it. Then I colored a little flaked coconut with green to make kind of patchy grass on it - did it in a 9x13 pan. Was wonderful!! The girls were 9-10 at the time and were totally thrilled.

I found this on another recipe site -- it's not low-carb, but I love the look of it! I could see it being done on a MIM or something. Whatever you can make in a cup!
