Cubed coffee

I can claim no credit for this; I picked it up on delicious:days, one of the best foodie weblogs I know. I followed the recipe exactly, so there is no need to reproduce it here. I made the jelly firmer than I normally would, so it would cube nicely and hold together for the photos. It makes a cute after-dinner “drink”; I’d serve it with either a blob of sweetened whipped cream or a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Cubed coffee #2

Nicky of delicious:days is also an ace photographer. In another bloggy initiative, I have signed up for a “food photography 101″ course being run jointly by Nika of Nika’s Culinaria and Curt of Bucky’s Barbecue and Bread, in the hope that I can actually start posting photos on this blog.

I’ve done the first lesson, and the photo above is the result of actually experimenting with a few of the non-automatic settings on my camera instead of just hopefully pointing and shooting. OK, so it’s not up to Nika or Nicky standard yet, but it’s a big improvement!

I set up a Flickr account for the purpose of the course, so you can view my pathetic attempts there.

  • Its beautiful! Its the essence of jello. If you feel like making it again, try it with the light coming from the back right or left, getting some light through the jello and to lighten up the background for contrast.


    PS: I just posted up the second lesson.
