New Look

In case you haven't noticed I have (accidentally) changed the look of the Tastes Delicatessen blog. It really wasn't the plan. What I was meant to be doing is adding the topic labels you can see to the right and tidying them up a bit so there weren't so many. But there was this button on the admin screen to "update to new blogger" and I sort of clicked it to see what would happen. There were some new templates to choose. I clicked on one to see how it would look. But then I was stuck! No way to go back to my old template (which I'd spent hours making five years ago). So onwards it had to be, and three hours later I'd managed to get the new template looking almost how I want it. Not sure what those white boxes are though (some sort of missing image?). I can't get rid of them (yet). The only thing which seems to work is to post an empty entry which they seem to attach to. Hopefully they aren't too distracting.

Tastes Delicatessen - The Movie

If you popped into the deli over the past few days will probably have noticed Mark and his camera (if you didn't notice him, then you may well have a walk on part!). Corporate Photographer Mark Earthy has been here for many hours, filming what should be a movie, but in reality will be a short promotional video. It's been great fun (or it was until filming me was mentioned). What I've seen so far looks amazing and I can't wait to see the finished product. Watch this space (and YouTube!).

Going Viral!

I've been using pinterest for a few months now; to collect recipe ideas. Imagine my surprise at logging in yesterday and seeing a photograph of a cheese wedding cake which I made last summer right there on the homepage!

It was a photograph taken by Chloe Browne, pinned by a lady in California, from a blog article by 100 layer cake. I'm not sure if the total number of re-pins is recorded anywhere, but by the end of the day it felt like the cheese wedding cake photograph was everywhere. It's lovely to see it capturing so many people's imagination and being added to their wedding mood boards. The feedback has been great!
