Cream Cheese Zen Garden

A miniature zen garden with cream cheese instead of sand.

This idea is inspired by the beautiful swirling patterns that form on cream cheese when you spread it with a serrated blade.

The Cream Cheese Zen Garden is just a wide, flat tray covered in a layer of cream cheese. Using the included mini rakes and spades, you are encouraged to form as many pleasing ripples as you want on the surface of the spread. If it seems too minimalist, you can sprinkle some dill on it, or even put some (clean) pebbles on it in strategically placed positions. When you have achieved inner peace, just put the whole thing in the fridge. Hungry? Scoop out some cream cheese and spread it on your bagel. Then, of course, you have to preserve the flow of the garden by flattening it out again and filling it with more waves of zen.

       Edible zen garden, brilliant. [8th], you didn't actually click for that bun.

       Borg buns don't register until their system signs off or shuts down. ... Anyways, this idea is kinda xenny and should probably involve more custard, but now I'm realizing that everything I just said is shit esoterica and should probably just vote yes and go.   

       Keep it in da fridge!

       If you kept it on the table instead, it would start growing!

       Yes, but not in a good way.

       Sounds like something from Heston's Feasts <link>

       Nope, I got it!. Fleas!. And we're going to need three of them!
So once they are done flying through the cheese trees we can all say out loud what just happened!
Bless you Dr Seuss!

       I see the Zen Cream Cheese Bagel Co. as a bagel snack food franchise where you can buy tasty cream cheese bagels - i.e bagels sliced in half, lightly toasted and expertly spread with Zen cream cheese patterns to bring a little bit of delicious Zen into your day.

       That's an excellent idea. [8th]: fleas in cheese trees? Sounds like the bee's knees!
