My favorite fairy tale growing up was Hansel and Gretel by far! The idea of an entire house made out of chocolate and every other sweet goody in the planet was like something out of my dreams. If you shared in this dream, you will be really excited by this latest wonder – the world’s first “hotel” made entirely from cake! Constructed as a hotel within a hotel in Soho, central London, this sweet wonder is the result of excruciatingly hard work by more than 14 artists who spent 2,000 hours baking and 900 hours decorating with more than 600 kilos of sugar. Unfortunately, it will be open for only a day. On this day, lucky guests will have the opportunity to eat their way out of the hotel. The structure is made up of windows and walls clad with 2,000 macaroons, a rug made from 1,081 meringues hand-stitched together, 20 kilos of marshmallow garlands, windowsills built entirely from fudge and a bath filled with caramel-coated popcorn. Besides the furniture, the rooms are even dressed up with edible goodies; from edible books on the side table to edible art, everything is a piece of art.

Would a golden carrot taste better than the original one? If you eat with your eyes first maybe, for other gastronomes who don’t believe food is beautiful, just tasty, the edible spray paint may not excite you. For people in the food business, and especially fancy cake makers, this can be a dream come true. From blue strawberries, to silver chocolates and colourful sparkling capsicums there is no stopping the imagination. These edible spray paints called Food Finish sparkle with a metallic finish, I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad one but personally I wouldn’t wanna pop a strawberry in my mouth that looks like its made of metal.

Look what we have here, the worlds smallest and lightest DSLR. Those words must be music to the ears of many photographers and budding enthusiasts as this was the need to the day. Lugging heavy equipment everywhere is not what most people like, especially on a romantic getaway or a family holiday where you already carry a lot more than you intend to. This is where Canon EOS Rebel SL1, the smallest and lightest DSLR in the world (for now at least) emerges a hero. Weighing 14.36 ounces and measuring 4.6 in. (w) x 3.57 in. (h) x 2.74 in. (d), the Rebel SL1 is certainly smaller than the average DSLR. It is compact with a rubberesque coating which makes it comfortable to hold even with one hand if you’d like. No fear of dropping this camera down unless you have buttered fingers.

It ain’t October but that doesn’t mean we don’t do our bit for breast cancer awareness. Some recent development by a Japanese medical research team under the direction of Dr. Bin Nakayama, associate professor at Tottori University has resulted in successful empplyment of stem cells with patients’ own fat to help regenerate up to 90 percent of tissue removed during breast cancer surgery. That’s a breakthrough to say the least and a very positive sign for women going through the tough time. The procedure involves uniting our body fat and combining them with stem cells to make fat stem cells which prompt the growth of new blood vessels and as a result, from 70 to 90 percent of the transplanted fat remained in its new location and provides nutrients.
