But if you're here only for the prompts, I gotcha covered.
Writing Prompt #8
Technology is amazing nowadays. We can take pictures and then take those pictures and turn them into pixels of magic in the tornado of a mystical frosting machine and end up with pictures of pictures on a sheet cake. The picture below is of a piece of cake I got to eat at a friend's birthday party the other evening. I happen to be one of the faces in the picture. And when I dug into the chocolate cake with the white frosting, I wondered whether I was actually okay with eating my own face and the face of my friends.
|It's just sort of weird, this Face Cake thing...|
This lead to existential questions of my own visage, my own physical persona and the face I show to the world. It also lead to questions of cocoa powder and butter-cream frosting versus a nice cream cheese frosting base. You know, REAL questions.
So here is YOUR question: If you could put an expression, a human one, on something edible, what expression would that be and what would be the foodstuff wearing it? Would you paint a grimace on a plate of post-flambe Bananas Foster?
Then, once you've got it primed with a face, what do you do with it? Eat it or preserve it? Run away from it? Toss it in the garbage? What can you face? Yeah, I turned to a pun. I'm sorry.
