Okay maybe this makes me weird, but I have a confession. I adore fake food. The kind of rubbery displays in cheap Reno cafes and tiny polymer confections in dollhouses and I secretly want a bowl of wax grapes. Not the hokey obviously fake stuff....no the creepy almost "I can't believe that's not real" kind of stuff that you almost want to eat. One time I poked my curiuos finger into a little parfait at P.F. Chang's, assured they were rubber props, only to find out they were very, very real.
I'm in love with 'almost' real aspect of it. The incredible detail, the cutesy aspect, and most of all, the whimsy. How annoyingly splendid would it be to have a Tea Party with the most divine little macaroons and splendors you simply couldn't bite?
I want a menagerie of realistic faux food so that I can decorate my table like a feast and stare at it and it will never, ever spoil.
Anything you love that is well....weird? Don't be shy!
Examples of my yummy inedibles are at links below. Some are purely kawaii cute and some are so deceptively delicious, you want a bite (like the tempting strawberries above):
DivineSweetness : Jewelry, hand crafted polymer pretties
Fake Cake : Have a party with a fabulous cake. Kinda.
PetitPlat : More handcrafted polymer items...cupcake ring, anyone?
Fake Food Online : This is a fabulous site to browse. I almost want to order some and pretend to make dinner just to freak my family out. Does this mean I need therapy? :)
Display Fake Foods : Create a "wine spill" or how about a $153.00 martini?
