13 pieces of delicious celebrity-inspired food art

These people’s parents never told them to stop playing with their food.

ARTISTIC TALENT ISN’T something all of us are blessed with.

And artistic talent when it comes to foodstuff is another, more unique matter altogether.

Although we might pride ourselves on being able to sculpt an impressive mountain out of mashed potatoes, some people really take the meeting of the minds between food and art incredibly seriously.

Here are some of the best examples of food art out there on the information superhighway.

And for good measure, we’ve made sure they’re all creations inspired by celebrities. You’re welcome.

1. Cake Pop Game of Thrones

Behead your least favourite Game of Thrones character IN REAL LIFE by biting into a cake pop version of them. Vicious – and delicious.

2. Bacon Kevin Bacon

This food artist went literal. A portrait of Kevin Bacon made… from bacon. It’s simple, but it’s genius. Six degrees of Kevin Bacon has never sounded so appealing.

3. Pancake Ryan Gosling

Oh, Ryan. Be still our beating hearts. His eyes are so blue. Oh wait, that’s because they’re made of blueberries. Right.

4. Sushi Scream

Not so much a celebrity as a rendering of a world-famous artwork. This sushi-roller really captured Munch’s sense of crushing despair with this bleak meal.

5. Fruit Salad Little Mermaid

Perfect for kids, but I think all of us grown-ups would probably eat up Ariel’s kiwi fin too.

6. Gummy Bear Michael Jackson

You’re black, you’re white, you’re entirely constructed of confectionery, you’re in the middle, yeah yeah yeah.

7. Pizza Boris Johnson

“You wanna pizza the action?” this pizza-shaped Mayor of London seems to ask you sassily. “You wanna pizza me?”

8. Sambo Angry Birds

Many people may be addicted to playing Angry Birds on their phones. Some of these people may also enjoy a sandwich or two. This sambo is for those in the overlapping section of that particular Venn diagram.

9. Plum Mona Lisa

This artist even managed to recreate Mona Lisa’s plummy smile. By using an actual plum.

10. Twizzler Animal

Animal bangs the drums in the Muppets. He’s an angry, bashy sort of Muppet – we’ve never seen him looking so sweet. Sweet, get it? SWEET.

11. Salad Piglet

This adorable little Piglet made from salad and rice is so cute that we probably couldn’t bring ourselves to eat it. Probably.

12. Honey Eminem

It’s hard to exactly make out what jarred foodstuff this portrait of Eminem has been crafted from, but we’re guessing honey. A surprisingly saccharine choice of material for the notoriously sour rapper.

13. Sandwich Frida Kahlo

We think Mexican artist Frida Kahlo would have been proud of this piece of toast in her likeness. Or else, deeply disgusted on a creative level. One of the two, anyway.

Do these people have too much time on their hands, or do we all really need to up our game with our own Instagrammed food pictures?

Beats scratching out a smiley face in burnt toast, I guess.
