Hark! All Ye Netizens!! No more Window
s Eating (as in window shopping ) or Wishful ogling,drooling and sighing at all the delicious food pics on the net.
Years and years of drooling at the tempting displays of mouth watering goodies on the Windows (read computer screens) can soon come to an end. Because ‘Scotty ‘ is round the corner.
All those who have grown up watching the popular sci-fi television series Star Trek, know very well what I am talking about. “Beam me up, Scotty” was the command given by the Captain Kirik to his chief engineer, Montgomery “Scotty” Scott, when he wanted to be transported back to the Starship Enterprise. Star Trek-style ‘beaming up’ through space could become a reality in the near future.
German scientists have built a teleporter system that can scan an object and beam it to another location.The device, named after the operator of the transporter in the hit sci-fi TV series ‘Scotty’, digitizes an object in one place, destroying it in the process, and rebuilds it in another location.Click this link to see how it works
Just imagine if we can really beam up our dishes to each other across the globe, would it not be amazing!!
I can’t talk anymore. I will check if I can order ‘Scotty’ online. Or maybe, I will book my next flight to Germany 😉
Request to all my friends and fellow bloggers:
PLEASE BUY ONE SCOTTY AND KEEP YOUR BEST DISHES READY. AS SOON AS YOU HEAR A BEEP BEAM ‘EM ALL UP TO ME.
However, if you choose to ignore, you never know, maybe I will beam myself up to your kitchen 😉

After reading and talking so much about fictional characters and food, I remembered it’s time already for Fiesta Friday. I decided to make a super moist pine apple pastry cake with disney characters to the party. The cake can be sliced up into individual pastries each with a famous cartoon character. This is for all the kids who are accompanying their moms to the party.
Disney Pine apple pastry cake
What you need:
- 1 1/2 cups butter (338 g)
- 3 cups sugar ( 600 g)
- 5 large eggs
- 1/2 cup aerated lemon drink ( 7 Up will do fine)
- 3 cups Cake flour (420 g)
- 1 tsp. lemon zest
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 cup pineapple juice
- 1 edible Disney character edible sheet
- glaze spray (optional)
Grease bottom and sides of 2 (9-inch) rectangle cakepans ( I used a pan which fits the size of my edible disney sugar sheet); line bottoms with wax paper. Grease and flour wax paper.
Drain pineapple, reserving 3/4 cup juice. Remove 1/4 cup reserved juice for soaking the cake, and reserve crushed pineapple for Pineapple Filling.
Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition.
Combine 1/2 cup reserved pineapple juice and soft drink. Add flour to butter mixture alternately with juice mixture, beginning and ending with flour. Beat at low speed until blended after each addition. Stir in extracts. Pour into prepared cake pans.
Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pans immediately; cool on wire racks.
Spread whipped cream and Pineapple Filling between cake layers. Spread Cream on sides of cake and on top.
Gently place the Disney sugar sheet on top of the cake and smooth-en. Spray glaze on top if needed. Pipe cream border around top, if desired.
