The World’s Top 10 Best Zebra Cakes

The World’s Top 10 Best Zebra Cakes
chocolate mint icebox cake.
Don’t get confused here, because this isn’t a blog post about Zebra shaped cakes, it is about a dessert cake that people just happen to call “Zebra cakes” (Or Icebox cakes if you are elsewhere in the world) apparently the first ever Zebra cakes where just a slight deviation from a trifle! But I only found out about these the other day when someone posted a picture of one they had made on their Pinterest wall, it looked so amazing it inspired me to do this post! So come with me and grab a dessert spoon because you are going to want to try some of these…

The World’s Top 10 Best Images of Cats Waiting
Today’s Caturday post comes from a rather amazing story I read a while back about a cat that waited over a year for their owner to return from Australia! The owner had thought that the cat had run away because he tried to get it into a carry basket to take it round a friend’s house for them to look after it while they were away(which the cat REALLY didn’t like.) But the cat lived wild of a whole year living off the kindness of strangers and the odd animal it could catch. So please do join me as I attempt to discover just what is…

The World’s Top 10 Best Makaon Recycled can art sculptures

The World’s Top 10 Best Makaon Recycled can art sculptures
I am not the kind of guy that people would instantly associate with the being an “Art Lover”, sure I do appreciate a good painting like the Mona Lisa but when it comes to modern art I just have not got a clue. But when a fellow nerdette makes art then I naturally enjoy it because that artist has been inspired by the same things that I like! But there isn’t many modern artists that have done enough to warrant a whole top 10 inspired solely by their work. But Japanese artist “Makaon” has done just that and it does bring me great pleasure to bring you just a small selection of her work…
The World’s Top 10 Best Makaon Recycled can art sculptures
What you are about to see is the top 10 works of art created by “Makaon” and what makes her work unique is that they are all made from 100% drink cans being cut and bent into shape! So enjoy the images and see if you can work out what drinks cans she used.
(no prize it is just for fun)
