Cupcakewurst – What happens when you fill a sausage with cupcake batter instead?

Cupcake cake that looks like a hot dog or sausage bratwurst on a long john doughnut bun and raspberry icing as ketchup

This does. I’m sure plenty of people are completely grossed out by it and I actually ran across it because it disturbed some people so much…

But I think it’s brilliant!

Do I necessarily want to it eat? Nah. Do I think the pictures from before it was cooked look rather gross? Definitely.

But the idea of filling a casing with something completely unexpected, cooking it, then grilling it and adding it another similarly placed dish to turn it into something completely different? Uh, yes please. In case you couldn’t tell, the “bun” in that picture is half a long john donut and the ketchup is a raspberry topping.

And because Stef is awesome, she even gives a full picture tutorial of how to make your own. It might gross you out, but come on, what little boy wouldn’t love that at his next birthday? Scratch that. Father’s Day is here, isn’t it? What guy wouldn’t love to be allowed to have dessert for dinner? :P

“Food is too salty” – Watch your mouth or get jailed

food, food bloggers, news, reviews | July 2, 2011 | By

Easy there with your adjectives, food bloggers. If you dare to call a restaurant’s offerings "too salty" in Taiwan (….), you could wind up behind bars, the Daily What notes.

A woman with an amateur food blog of moderate success (the Taipei Times reports she has received more than 60,000 hits) was sentenced to 30 days in jail, given two years probation and fined the equivalent of $6,782 CDN.


I know, I know, different countries have different laws and expectations. People are jailed for all sorts of things we’d consider “silly.”

Here’s the kicker, though. The rest of her review said things about the restaurant having roaches and such, but the judge had no issue with that.  Apparently it’s okay to make claims about a place being unsanitary (even though it was later inspected and found at that point to be clean) and even to call the owner a bully (for letting customers park their cars haphazardly, leading to traffic jams).

To call the food “too salty,” though, was considered defamation because the woman had only tasted one dish and therefore, shouldn’t speak about the restaurant’s dishes as a whole. The fine was to pay the owner for lost business. Oops.
