Food Magic

  1. Surprise surprise! I like props and weird stuff.

    So I'm looking around for magic effects or props that look like food. The only one I can think off the top of my head:

    Overstuft
    &
    Magical Burger

    I'm thinking of making a set that uses 'food magic'. At least, I think it would be funny.

    Any suggestions?

  2. Linking Lifesavers is a quick and easy effect that you can make yourself or buy at Penguin.
     
  3. A few off the top of my head:

    Healed and Sealed
    Sponge Bananas (can be used in any sponge ball routine)
    Vanishing Coke Bottle (or it's many variations)
    There is a trick in Art of Astonishment where you unscrew an apple and then put it back together again (yeah...seriously...)

    Just a few ideas. I guess you could say...wait for it....food for thought...;)

  4. A real apple? An actual apple? Think about the practical applications!
     
  5. Yup, real apple. Just checked and the effect has the amazingly original title of 'Apple' (!).

    The trick is not impromptu, so I'm not sure where you would ever do it. Nice idea though, maybe something to ponder...

  6. How about my kitchen? Have a nice fruit bowl set up? :)
     
  7. I completely forgot that I have Ray Kosby's Impossible Close-Up Magic.

    In there is 'The Bite': a color changing Apple.

    It's a neat trick that's more comical in nature, but not strong enough to be a 'stand alone' trick. But 'The Bite' is one of those tricks to where you're watching the tutorial of how it's done and wonder HOW someone could have figured a way to do that in the first place.

    Anyway.

    In the routine, he has someone shuffle cards (it could count as misdirection, but it's really plays better if you immediately transition into another effect after people notice that the apple changed colors.)

    If anyone is curious, it's the last trick in this video (even though I think all the tricks are worth watching. 'The Bite' and the trick using the Goshman sponge '4' are the EASIEST tricks on that DVD. The hardest being 'Osmosis' which is the coin trick also seen in the video). The secret for that one is just bonkers to hear him SAY. Anyway, I'm going off on tangents. 'The Bite' is the last trick if anyone wants to see it.

     
  8. My 13 year old is very good at making a whole pizza disappear.

    Off the top of my head, Vanishing Bandana, Apples and Oranges (from Steinmeyer's Conjuring Anthology), Magic Candy Maker (turns sugar into candy), Magic Milk Pitcher, Bill in Lemon (orange, kiwi, etc.), Airborne (floating glass while pouring), Orange Lemon Egg Canary, Dove Pan, Champagne Production (splash bottle), Miser's Dream with Cookies, Jeff Prace's Gum, Oreo Cookie Routines (I'm thinking of one done on the first EMC and a bitten and restored Oreo), multiplying bottles, Mojo by John Kennedy, Gazzo's Cups and Balls (fruit and melon finale) and Cyril's burger trick:
