[USA] Toast is Adeline Waugh’s canvas. The Florida-based food stylist, photographer and recipe developer is the creator of mermaid toast, the latest whimsical food to sweep Instagram. She achieved her “ocean-inspired toast” using a mix of blue-green algae powders and liquids blended with almond milk cream cheese, she writes on Instagram.
Waugh told Food & Wine that this is all in a day’s work, as someone who “spends my time doing things like dyeing cream cheese with beet juice and turmeric, or taking 200 photos of a piece of toast.” Waugh is also behind last year’s unicorn toast sensation, where she used cream cheese and natural pigments like drops of chlorophyll and freeze-dried strawberry powder to create pastel swirls.
To the haters, calling her creations “silly” or asking “who has time for that?!” Waugh responded with another shot of her aquatic toast, saying: “I am just having fun! I am a food stylist and I like to create beautiful things using food – I’ve never claimed to be starting a trend or a putting out a new recipe that is super practical – it’s 100 per cent impractical, I just like to play around in the kitchen and attempt to create something aesthetically pleasing and unique from time to time.”
