This year was a great year for food trends, as 2012 saw the rise of the urban foodie and his/her accompanying cuisine blog. The Internet and food go together like peanut butter and jelly -- or rather, according to this year's hottest food fads, bacon and anything. A lot of the appeal of food is based in its visual appeal, which works well with your average Web user, not to mention the opportunity for very in-depth DIY tutorials.

Recipes reigned supreme on Trend Hunter this year, with instructions on how to make everything from impaled head cake pops to unicorn poop cookies available at a click of the mouse.
