I have spent thousands of hours turning my favorite snack food into my favorite celebrities. These peanut caricatures started as a joke at work in mid-2012. I would make quick sketches of my co-workers on a peanut that was roughly their body shape. The results got big laughs so I tried making ones of famous people. I have a giant list of all the people I want to make and am slowly working my way through it.

Photographer Klaus Enrique Gerdes created a series of edible compositions called “The Arcimboldo Series” in the manner of 16th century Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
“Sweet Meat” is a fun project done by German photographer Jasmin Schuller in which she uses real meat to create deliciously sinful looking desserts. For these compositions Jasmin used plenty of meat scraps, two liters of blood, a bucket of animal grease and five kilos of raw meat. For example, the tasty looking ice-cream sundae is actually made from minced meats covered in grease cream, and topped with a cherry carved from a pig’s heart. The cherry syrup is actually blood.
