Simply the zest

first_imgWith demand for new doughnut flavours, shapes and ideas, Macphie (Glenbervie, Scotland) has launched 5th Avenue Lemon Icing. The icing contains real lemon juice and requires heating in a microwave or bain-marie before use. Alternatively, a pipeable buttercream filling or topping can be created by beating the icing with cake margarine at a ratio of 50/50. The 5th Avenue range is available in 12.5kg pails.Alison Daniels, category marketing manager, says: “The key to doughnuts is freshness, variety and added value. Research shows that 80% of bakery items are bought on impulse – consumers buy with their eyes.”last_img

Hilarious Uncharted 4 bug makes Elena the loneliest woman in video games

first_imgThese days, we expect games to release with a number of weird or frustrating bugs. It’s (sadly) become a standard of modern gaming. Even though for the most part, Uncharted 4 is a relatively bug-free experience, that doesn’t mean that it is free of a few random glitches. A video was recently posted on YouTube by user KHCloud that highlights one of the more disturbing bugs we’ve seen in the series.Early in the game, there is a touching scene between protagonist Nathan Drake and his wife Elena. Without giving too much away, it is a scene that shows the bond between a husband and wife who have both survived some of the most outlandish situations people could find themselves in. As humanizing and heartfelt as the scene is, it plays very differently when Nathan drake is rendered invisible.At first, the video is amusing for the simple fact that Elena is conversing with an invisible man who is playing a video game. It is when she starts to embrace and make out with Nathan where things get decidedly creepy. As weird as this all is, it is also fascinating to see Elena’s animations and how her body reacts to something that isn’t there.This same bug has been reported to also happen to a lemur that Nathan interacts with later on in the game. As odd as it is to have Drake talking to an invisible monkey, it is infinitely stranger to see, or rather not see, an invisible Drake swapping spit with his wife.last_img read more
