Edible Sculptures

A few years ago I sent my dad a book called “Play with your food.” I love the creativity behind all of the funny creatures and characters that are revealed in this book, and since then, have evolved into collections of ‘food sculptures.’ They remind me of Michealangelo’s comment about the sculpture “David”: “I merely removed the unnecessary marble, ‘he’ was already inside it.”

If you attend your local state/country fair you will no doubt have seen “butter” sculptures or to my delight, chocolate sculptures : ) Many food artists will carve their sculptures from a solid “block” of material, especially the ‘butter’ artists, however many of the chocolate artists will cast their creations as seen below.
