Food Sculpture 

Published February 9, 2008 at 11:21 a.m.

I snapped this picture of a cheddar carving at the American Cheese Society Conference last summer.

I thought of it again this morning when I discovered a YouTube video about a Korean sculptor who makes art out of (uncooked) Ramen noodles (you can find the video at the bottom of the post).

My next thought was: "What other kinds of food sculpture can I discover?" Lots, as it turns out...

~ Jim Victor does amazing things with chocolate, cheese and butter.

~ Gorgeous, lacy eggshell carvings by Christel Assante.

~ At there's a parrot made of sugar, an egret made of chocolate and  a wedding cake topped with edible snowflakes.

~ Intricate carved watermelons and fruit and squash carvings.

~ An artist who covers everyday objects with melted cheese.

There are tons more, but I'll save them for another post.
