Nerdie Foodie: Inside Out Edition

Welcome back to the first week of school! (Disclaimer: writer is Canadian). This week on Foodie Friday we are going to dive into the world of emotions! This summer, Disney Pixar released an amazing movie called Inside Out. I rarely get emotional while watching a movie, but Disney Pixar did such a great job with Inside Out that I not only did I cry during the movie, I also started crying during the short animation about a volcano looking for love. Seriously, how can you not love this cute short?? Check out this small clip from “Lava”!

Sorry (but not sorry), we deviated a bit there. Now, because Inside Out is such a popular movie (my favourite character is Disgust), there is no shortage of creative inspirations for food that is inspired by the movie. Here are just a few of my favourite ideas (in no particular order of course!):

Inside Out Jello

Megan Camarena (@Strawburry17) shows us a cool way to make a super quick (minus waiting time) and super easy Inside Out inspired dessert out of Jello, whipped cream, food colouring, and edible glitter. Plus paint, paint brushes for decorating the mini mason jars. Check out the how-to video below!

Sadness Sugar Cookie

Hani Bacova (@Hanielas) shows us how to turn a star-shaped sugar cookie into Sadness! She is super talented with that royal icing! For this how-to, you’ll need a good amount of royal icing and divvied up into black and a couple shades of blue, and of course, don’t forget that sugar cookie! Check out her YouTube tutorial below!
