Mermaid Toast Is The Latest Colorful Food Trend That's Too Pretty To Eat

Look at this toast, isn't it neat? Wouldn't you say my whole breakfast's complete? The latest colorful food creation that's taking the Instagram world by storm is mermaid toast, which looks like toast smeared with ocean waves. It actually tastes a lot simpler than it looks.

Mermaid toast was invented by Adeline Waugh, a food stylist and Instagram personality (@vinbrantandpure). It's made with homemade almond milk cream cheese that's mixed with blue-green algae powders and liquids — to give it that "fresh from the ocean" look — and sprinkled with gold leaf.

"I am a food stylist and I like to create beautiful things using food— I've never claimed to be starting a trend or putting out a new recipe that is super practical," Waugh explained in a social media post. "I just like to play around in the kitchen and attempt to create something aesthetically pleasing and unique from time to time."

Waugh has also created rainbow unicorn toast, and we all know how popular unicorn-themed food is lately.
