TOASTIE: A Step-By-Step Guide to Taking a Selfie with Toast

Selfie-Toast-Bread

For anyone sick to death of seeing selfies posted on their social media feeds, here’s a way raise the bar. Apparently, it’s possible to take a selfie of yourself on a piece of toast. Provided you have the time and equipment, or enough internet savvy to place an order at Burnt Impressions, home of the Vermont Novelty Toaster Corp.

CEO and President Galen Dively explained the process for creating images of people on toast  to Mashable. Dively bought a CNC Plasma Cutter, a computerized metal cutting machine that creates requisite plates. The company makes novelty toasters with various logos, including the famous Jesus face. Now you can submit your own photos, for a price, get your custom toaster made and shipped.

__________

Designing the Image

Selfie-Photoshop-Toast

A digital photo is first uploaded onto the Vermont Toaster website.  There, the image is thrown on Photoshop and touched up. A hi-res image over a white background, however, is the preferred option as it speeds up the process.

Once edited, the photo is uploaded to a computer aided design program. It creates a relatively close duplicate of the face on toast by eliminating unnecessary lines.

__________

Cutting the Plates

Selfie-Toast-Machine

The image is sent to the Plasma Cutter which combines compressed air and electricity to create an incredibly hot plasma that can cut through metal. Once the plates are cut, and it looks good, the team makes the second plate.

__________

Final Touches

The plates are polished throughly to get out all the rough edges.

Adding Custom Toaster Plates

Finally, the finished plates are added to a custom-made toaster with built-in rails to hold the plates inside. Each side of the toaster gets one plate with a face embedded onto it.

Boom. Selfie toast.

Taco Bell Rolling Out XXL Steak Taco, Their ‘BIGGEST’ Taco Yet

XXL-Taco

Following the return of their XXL Steak Nachos, Taco Bell is giving their standard crunchy taco the same lovin’. Claiming it’s their “BIGGEST taco ever,” the chain’s new XXL Crispy Steak Taco packs double the steak with lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, avocado ranch sauce and reduced fat (unnecessary) sour cream fixings.

The fast food super taco will feature  a new, crispy shell and rolls out nationwide Thursday, February 27 at $2.99 each. If you want to opt of the steak and swap in shredded chicken or ground beef, it’ll run you$2.79 and $2.49, respectively.

Although, seeing as one simple crunchy taco costs $.99, we’re not sure if the XXL is worth it deal-wise. Unless you’re eating for novelty, which always (see usually) gets a gold sticker for effort.
