I was very touched by your concern for my well-being and my waistline after my excessive consumption of donuts, so I’m going to share with you a diet secret that few know about.
See this oversized burger? It contains not a single calorie.
These colossal ice cream cones are kilojoule free.
And this pavlova, perfect and plus-sized, is guaranteed not to add a single centimetre to your waistline.
What’s my diet secret? Believe it or not, this fabulous food is all fake!
Creating fake food for restaurant window displays known as sampuru is an art form in Japan. These amazingly realistic models, once shaped in wax but now made from plastic, are meticulously made by hand, often to the particular requirements of a restaurant. On Kappabashi-dori, or Kitchen Street, in Tokyo there are fake food shops where you can feast your eyes all day long on sumptuous trays of sushi or delicious looking crepes without putting on any weight.
Now where did I put that donut?
