So I’ve been accused of objectifying my food-freeze framing it. Guilty as charged. Place me in the camp of bloggers who as Jessicasays “recreates overflow”. Well with this one I didn’t so much re-create an overflow as much as I wanted to shoot the overflow in action. As for the opening shot below, it’s out of scale and crooked, but then everything turned into a big mess before I could get it right.
The thing with some of us food bloggers, we get weird with our food—we talk to it, we massage into shape, we primp and garnish it for added enhancement (not to be mistaken for enhancing food into something it’s not). We are culinary fluffers—if you will. If you don’t know what a fluffer is, don’t look up this term in front of young eyes. You’ve been warned. When you do look it up, let’s judge me kindly and agree that I am well read.
I shouldn’t even qualify that I know the meaning (not from experience!) of such a word, but the last time I mentioned it was with some friends and half of them had no idea what it was and were somewhat shocked I did—then not so shocked.
To know me, is to know I’m full of contradictions—my ex-boyfriends can attest to that and Matt will confirm it. I am a husband’s nightmare and a writer’s dream – at least for the first and second act.
Okay, seriously, I veered way off the food path on this one. Back to the matter at hand: Beer floats, more accurately, chocolate Porter and Biscoff coffee beer floats. I know it sounds like a crazy combination, but it works. The Biscoff spread adds a spiced bite to the coffee ice cream that’s further enhanced by the chocolate Porter beer.

I’m both cheap and a neat freak…overflowing on purpose and wasting precious chocolate and then having to clean up said sticky mess that got all over…I’ll let you and Jessica keep on with your overflows. I’ll just slurp neatly from my glass. Lol

I love the overflow pics…what a delicious mess! I’ve always wanted to make a grown up beer float! Off to get some porter.

Gerry @ Foodness Gracious says
Wow!! These are amazing and I love the mess. Sometimes photos work and sometimes not but these are awesome. Go Biscoff!
I LOVE how these turned out & have now added a few things to my list for the market.
I thought I knew what a fluffer was…I was wrong. LOL
While I’m not a beer-drinker, I think my husband would go crazy over these! He absolutely loves the flavor of Biscoff. Unintentionally, I have sort of joined your Biscoff-themed week by making cherry biscoff ice cream with pieces of biscoff cookies in the ice cream 🙂
Love this, Naomi. I’ll take two of these…haha, I need them on my flight right now!

I saw the pic on instagram.. SO beautiful!!
This drink looks boozily delicious!! love them
Sarah – Bingo. Yes, they are styled and photographed in tealight holders, but I wouldn’t not eat out of them as I’m sure they are not food safe. 🙂

I seriously love your blog. Like, really seriously. I love the imperfect pics, and real like convo feel.
Looks yummy. What flavor of ice cream did you use?
