Nerdie Foodie: Designical Treats

Welcome back Nerdie Foodies to another week of fun and creative recipes! This week we take a dive into designical desserts! What are designical desserts you ask? Well that is a very good question! It’s using different cooking and baking techniques to create beautiful masterpieces. Not going to lie, these recipes will take some time and sometimes a whole lot of patience. Let’s check them out!

Glass Potato Chips

Let’s start off with a simple snack. This recipe is from Imnopeas on Instructables. Here she teaches us how to make edible glass that tastes like potato chips. Not to worry, these beautiful chips are actually made from potatoes and you can flavour them to whatever your heart desires! Check out the recipe here!

Dessert Shots

After a full meal, most people won’t have room for dessert, but if you took a look at these next two desserts, you just might for these bite-sized goodies! The good part? If you have leftover raspberry decorations and coolie/gelee, you can make both recipes!

First up, Elise Strachan (from My Cupcake Addiction) shows us how to make a raspberry white chocolate cheesecake! Check out the recipe below!


If you’re more for a summer-y tropical feel, YouTuber Adilicious shows us her recipe that is similar in concept but with a mango mousse and raspberry gelee instead. Check out this beautiful bite-sized dessert below!


Edible Snow Globes

Snow globes. A childhood staple for most kids during the winter holidays. Only this time, Ann Reardon (from How to Cook That) shows us how to make our very own edible version. Check out the amazing recipe below! Who doesn’t want to try an edible snow globe? I know I do!

Chocolate spiral

Another beautiful recipe by Ann (I couldn’t resist) whom is a qualified food scientist based in Australia after all. This gorgeous yet simple plating of a chocolate mirror cake dome with a white chocolate spiral covering would impress any guest. Check out the video below!

These recipes are not only Instagram worthy, but they are all exquisitely handmade with a lot of love and patience. As always, if you try any of these recipes, please share a photo or two of it with us on our social medias as we’d love to see your creativity!

‘Til next time,
