With the advent of bloggers competing for increasingly visually-driven traffic numbers, and a public hungry for the next big thing, more and more over-indulgent, over-the-top recipes are being created to satiate a massive desire for all things decadent. It’s a game we play as food bloggers, as Jamie Schler recently pined in her Huffington Post article. More traffic for us means more money.

So, stuffed cookies, brownies baked in cakes, and triple-stuffed burgers have made their appearance on the world’s stage.
It’s not just bloggers continually competing for the attention of the uber-indulgent.
