Illusion Dessert Bowls

Illusion Dessert Bowls

It really is true that we “taste with our eyes” to some extent when a plate of food is set in front of us. Appearance alone doesn’t trump taste, but it can really help elevate a dessert from being very tasty to being unforgettable. In other words, I’m happy to eat a brownie that has crumbled into bits after I tried (unsuccessfully) to remove it from its pan, but I’m not going to serve that particular brownie to dinner guests if I can cut a neater slice.

I tend to use simple bowls and plates – pretty much the same ones I use day in and day out – for dessert platings at home, with a few prettier bowls set aside for dressing up ice cream sundaes and such. These Illusion Dessert Bowls are tempting me to start up a new collection of dessertware. The bowls are made of glass and are shaped to give the appearance that a traditional dessert bowl is suspended in clear glass. The effect is lovely, and the fact that the bowls are dishwasher and microwave safe is a bonus that makes the seemingly delicate dishes practical.

Is it too early to add to my Christmas wish list?
