Cheese to Please


I had the pleasure of speaking to a group of copywriting students at WSU today, and I brought them a little snack - slices of pumpkin pie made out cheddar cheese wedges, assorted crackers and ranch dressing-flavored cream cheese.

The topic of today's presentation was: How to think visually. So naturally I shared a slideshow of my food art attempts and tried to explain the concepts behind the creations. After all, great creative always starts with a solid concept, right?

I'm not sure if I taught them anything, but at least I fed them.

UPDATE: In 2013, I created a simple tutorial for these pumpkin pie cheese appetizers. You can find it here, at SheKnows.

* The crackers I used were Triscuit Thin Crisps Chile Pepper (triangles), Chicken in a Biskit (rectangles), and Chex Mix Bold Party Blend (wavy sticks). I attached them to the cheese wedges with dollops of ranch dressing-flavored ream cheese.

Sandra, you can come talk to the Ulrich staff anytime. We would learn how to be copywriters--or anything if you brought us treats like these!t

It's a deal, Aimee. I know... let's do a show on edible art - everything gets eaten at the gallery opening.

Did you purchase the cheese already precut? If so, what brand is it?

Project Denneler said...

I bought a large block of cheddar cheese and cut it into triangle shapes.
