Boredom buster – sugar fix special

Hayden Panettiere

It’s a wet, cold and generally dismal Friday here in London, so there’s only one thing for it – sugar!  So get the kettle on, sit back and join us for some calorific fun!
 
It’s been a favourite of ours for a while now – but on a cold wet Friday it doesn’t get much better than Pimp That Snack!  I mean who doesn’t want to know which would come out tops in a face-off between a giant jammie dodger and cherry bakewell?!
 
You can always trust the NYtimes to find a great blog – and they don’t get much more amusing than Cake Wrecks – a blog about when professional cakes go wrong – and boy, do they go wrong!  From works of art to cakes from your worst nightmares, you’ve really never seen anything like it!
 
It may be cold outside, but the bad weather’s done little to suppress our appetite for the frozen creamy stuff!  For those of you who love ice cream as much as we do, you’ll absolutely love the flavour generator on Ben and Jerry’s website, where you get the chance to create your very own tub – banana and caramel with chocolate layer cake and fudge swirls, mmm mmm mmm!
 
Now, we like a good cupcake as much as the next girl, but the guys at Cup cake camp have taken it one step further.  With flavours such as bacon and maple and strawberry basil they would even give Heston Blumenthal food for thought!
 
If like us you were out on the town last night this may be a little close to home.  Thanks to the lovely guys and gals at Radio 1 you can now convert your alcohol calories into junk food, eek eek EEK!  Think we’ll be sticking to gin and slimline’s from now on!
