While Kareena calls him “the most gorgeous baby on this side of the equator”. We instead feel he is like this most delicious looking cup cake or ice cream or macron or whatever you have a sweet tooth for. No seriously! Check out his cheeks to that Bebo-like pout face from this latest pic and tell me if you don’t feel the sugar rush. In case you are wondering where is this pic coming from, then let me tell you this was clicked last evening when the little Nawab stepped out wearing a cool-sy yellow tee and red pants to chill at his mom’s bestie Amrita Arora’s house.  Like it obviously was nothing but just another day in the cutie’s life. But blame it on our obsessive love for Taimur, all that we could think of after looking at this pic is a menu full of desserts. Also read: It’s not a good morning until you see these irresistibly cute pics of Kareena’s baby Taimur!

You have seen Ranveer Singh being compared to cupcakes. Now get ready to slurp over these pictures of Taimur looking as yummilicious as a cupcake, ice cream and everything that you crave for. PS: In case you are on a no-sugar diet then you are going to have a really tough time scrolling down….

Taimur as a macaroon


Taimur as gummy bear


Taimur as a cupcake


Taimur as a lollipop


Taimur as an ice-cream


If this is the case with us, then imagine how mommy Kareena must be dealing with Taimur’s irresistible cuteness every single day. No wonder she recently went on to confess, “Taimur is always chilled out. He is so gorgeous. The only thing he doesn’t like about me is that I kiss him about 20,000 times a day. And he keeps pushing me off. Saif says why are you doing this. But I always feel like hugging him.”

All said and done, I think we have treated your sweet tooth pretty well for the day! Do come back to BollywoodLife for more such mouth-watering updates!

A Look at Ten Delicious Iranian Desserts


The food of each country is part of that country’s individualities and is known as one of the factors introducing its culture. Some of them are so interesting and noticeable that can even be considered as one of the attractions in the world today. The Iranian food culture is of great diversity, and at every point a new taste can be discovered and enjoyed.

Pontia Fallahi, the Iranian-American woman, has a different look at this culture, and in an article introduces ten Iranian desserts that could be a different experience for those who travel to this land.

According to a Farsi report by Karnaval.ir, Pontia was born and lived in America and has the experience of living in three other countries. In her article, she has described ten local desserts that everyone should try them.

She says Chelow kabab [the national dish of Iran, consisting of cooked rice and one of the many varieties of Iranian kebab] is one of the most well-known Iranian cuisines and almost everyone knows it, but does anyone pay attention to desserts in this country?

“Iranians have a friendly culture and use every opportunity to get together and drink tea. The interest in the tea has made the Iranians attracted to sweet tastes. These tastes are a different experience that few people pay attention to. They have three inseparable elements: saffron, rose water and cardamom.

  • Zulbia & Bamiyeh

Zulbia is the name of a sweet that is poured into oil by a funnel and deep-fried in pretzel or circular shapes. Then, it is soaked in rosewater and saffron syrup to get a different taste.

Bamiyeh is also the name of another sweet that is usually served together with Zulbia and is very similar to Chorru (a Spanish fried-dough pastry). Bamiyeh is also dipped in sugar syrup.

These two sweets have many fans in the holy month of Ramadan because after a day of fasting, it provides the body with the sugar it needs.

South of Iran and the Persian Gulf islands display a kind of different culture in Iran that is even touchable in their cuisine. In these regions of Iran, people fill in soft dates with walnuts, then put them in a blend of fried flour, saffron, cardamom, and cinnamon to make a delicious dessert called Ranginak. This delicious dessert can make everyone crazy with its appearance, and its taste can put a spell on you.

  • Faloodeh Shirazi

With the first look at Faloodeh, you may ask yourself: Who would eat noodles as desserts? But if you taste these noodles that are dipped in the rosewater syrup, for sure you will not trust your eyes when choosing something to eat. There are many choices ahead; you can have this dessert with lemon juice or enjoy it with sour cherries and other syrups. Faloodeh is the best choice in the hot summer days and you can find the best ones in the city of Shiraz.

  • Akbar Mashti Ice Cream or Traditional Ice Cream

In the 1950s, a person named Akbar Mashhadi introduced a delicious ice cream that has become the most famous ice cream in Iran today. This ice cream is also known as the traditional ice cream and has many fans. The combination of vanilla ice cream, saffron with rose water and pistachios can be an exciting experience for you, but not as much as when frozen cream pieces surprise you and make you feel good. This ice cream is served both in a cup and in a special Iranian form of ice cream sandwiches.

  • Shole-Zard

Now it’s time to introduce the special Iranian pudding which is made with rice. The high-quality Iranian saffron also gives it an excellent yellow colour and aroma. Cinnamon is also an ingredient, but is used exclusively for dressing. In the religious ceremonies and during the holy month of Ramadan, Shole-Zard is served among Muslim communities free of charge.

  • Yazdi Sweets

Yazd in central Iran is one of the cities that are famous for delicious sweets. In this city you can try different types of Baklava including the Greek and Turkish ones. You can also taste Qottab [almond-filled deep-fried Iranian cuisine pastry] Loz-e Nargil {Iranian coconut sweets with rosewater] and cotton candy. Of course, never miss a cup of hot tea next to these delicious sweets.

Koloocheh is a delicious cookie with different flavours such as cinnamon, walnut, cocoa, etc. Different regions of Iran have Koloochehs with different shapes. Koloocheh can be served in the afternoon along with your tea, or during your breakfast.

Sohan is the most famous traditional Iranian sweet. The ingredients of this brittle toffee are saffron, eggs, rosewater, sugar, butter, and cardamom. Its colour and the pistachio on top of it can make you crazy! Every time you have Sohan, you will need to brush your teeth.

Isfahan province in central Iran is the origin of this delicious candy. Sap of Angabin (a plant), rosewater, and egg whites are the main ingredients of Gaz while almonds and pistachios could be added to it as well.

Iran’s halva is different from its other forms in the Middle East. To prepare it, the Iranians slowly sauté wheat flour in oil or butter and then add sugar, rosewater and saffron to it. Almonds and pistachios are used to make it pleased to the eye. This dessert has a special place in traditional religious ceremonies.

A List of Must-Try Japanese Summer Desserts!

Kakigori is also known as shaved ice, and it is one of the most popular Japanese desserts especially during summer! You can find kakigori at various locations – from summer festival’s food stalls to classy cafes and restaurants, you can find various types, from simple to fun and unique kakigori! Kakigori that you get at summer festivals generally use fruit flavored syrups to make it tasty, but the one that classy cafes and restaurants serve sometime have more toppings such as fresh fruits, shiratama (mochi), and more! It is a perfect dessert for summer!


Retina pixta 31649415 s

Tokoroten, beloved by Japanese people for more than thousand years, is one of the cooling desserts, thin sliced jelly that is commonly eaten with vinegar in Eastern region, or brown sugar syrup in Western part of Japan. Tokoroten is like noodles but made of jelly. If you are looking for a refreshing summer desserts, this is what you should try!

Anmitsu is a very popular Japanese dessert that usually contains fruits such as oranges, pineapples and cherry, cube of agar jelly, red bean, a scoop of ice cream, and sometimes shiratama (mochi), eaten with mitsu (sweet syrup).
This is a cooling and refreshing dessert, and there are many more unique Anmitsu offered in different cafes and restaurants! Aside from standard Anmitsu, some places offer acai Anmitsu, lemon tea Anmitsu, mango Anmitsu, and more, so it’s worth checking out these unique Anmitsu too!


Retina pixta 10762530 s

Kuzukiri is another refreshing Japanese summer dessert that is made from Kuzuko (a starch powder made from Kuzu plant’s root). It’s like transparent noodles too! It looks similar to Tokoroten, but Tokoroten is made of an agar weed (or gelidium), so these two are completely different. Kuzukiri does not really have a taste, so people generally eat with sweet syrup, which goes really well with this cooling dessert.

Mizuyokan is softer than a standard yokan, which is made of the same ingredients, red bean, sugar but less agar and more water. Mizuyokan used to be a seasonal dessert for winter, and there are few regions that still only eat it in winter. Its sweetness is very elegant, and the texture is very smooth. You should definitely give it a try!

Mizu Manju

Retina pixta 2934691 s

Some of you may have seen this cooling looking dessert – this is called Mizu Manju, perfectly cold and refreshing dessert. It is also called “Kuzu Manju” because the transparent part that covers red bean is made of kuzu powder (same ingredient as Kuzukiri!). Sometimes it is eaten with cold water too. Some places offer colorful Mizu Manju, and surprisingly it is not that hard to make them at home! Just looking at the photos already makes me feel refreshed.

Warabi Mochi

Warabi Mochi is a sweet Japanese mochi dessert made of Warabi, or bracken plant, covered or dipped in kinako powder, commonly eaten with brown sugar syrup. Warabi is really expensive now, so kuzu powder or potato starch are generally used as a substitute. It is a very cooling, and has a well-balanced sweetness that makes you unstoppable to eat! They also have matcha flavored Warabi Mochi, black colored Warabi Mochi and more! Find out more about Warabi Mochi by clicking the link below.

Disney’s New Halloween Desserts Will Get You Psyched For Oct. 31st


There must be something in the wind — and it’s making everyone want to skip the last weeks of summer and fly into fall. On the heels of Disney’s announcement that its Halloween parties are happening earlier than ever (Aug. 25th, in case you’re curious), the Magic Kingdom revealed some of the festive-but-not-quite-macabre treats it’ll be selling.

And this year, you better believe the treat everyone will be clamoring for is the Jack Skellington cake pop. It’s too spot-on not to Instagram — just look at that white chocolate face! — and features layers of vanilla panna cotta, chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream frosting, dark chocolate shavings, and white and dark chocolate crisp candy “pearls.” You can find it at Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square.

The second best treat, for those who are keeping score, will give the Grey Stuff a run for its money. Served at Gaston’s Tavern and Main Street Bakery, the Pumpkin Cheesecake Dome has a graham cracker base and is topped with an orange mirror glaze like the one on this epic Minnie cake.

Mickey Cheesecake


This year also features a nod to one of Disney’s classic rides, the Haunted Mansion, but to try this treat, you’re going to have to work for it. There are four different flavors, all topped with a different Haunted Mansion-inspired white chocolate “portrait,” and each one’s sold at a different place. Aloha Isle sells a chocolate ganache-filled chocolate tart that’s covered in Oreo panna cotta. In Tomorrowland, Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies sells a raspberry compote-stuffed chocolate tart topped with white chocolate mousse. (Psst … while you’re there, you can also score a scoop of Candy Corn Ice Cream.)

Chocolate Crisped Rice Treat


If you’re more of a purist when it comes to Halloween sweets — give me graveyard cakes or give me (un)death! — various food kiosks throughout the park will sell chocolate-dipped crisped rice treats (speckled with Halloween sprinkles) and Vampire Mickey Brownies. You can also get the most classic of All Hallows Eve potluck treats, Worms And Dirt, at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe.
