Say Hi to Mermaid Toast: The Hottest Instagram Trend of 2017 (So Far)

Over the last few years, creations like unicorn toast, rainbow bagels, and galaxy pastries became viral sensations. And now, here’s another stuff to be added to the list. Say hi to mermaid toast.

Mermaid toast is a foodstuff that's getting plenty of love on Instagram. It’s brought to you by Adeline Waugh -- a Florida-based food stylist and author. Yes, the same Waugh who spawned the megacolourful unicorn toast trend.

The colorful spread of this ocean inspired toast is a mixture of blue-green algae powders and almond milk cream cheese, and it looks like Waugh added some flecks of gold leaf for an extra bit of visual pop.

Waugh had some words for mermaid toast haters who wanted to know how she has time for these types of creations: “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% impractical, I just like to play around in the kitchen and attempt to create something aesthetically pleasing and unique from time to time. Also, I don't know about you, but with everything going on in the world today, sometimes I just want to look at some colorful food”.
