Have you ever been pleasantly surprised when you look into your coffee cup and see something neat like a heart or flower made from the foam? Kazuki Yamamoto takes that to entirely new level. He made these amazing coffee art creations using a simple toothpick. This trend of latte art is common in Japan and hopefully it makes its way to us!
In the eyes of Ernie Button breakfast cereal has changed from "mere nutrition to sheer entertainment." He says the cereal aisle has "become a cornucopia of vibrantly colored marshmallows" that represent people and characters. His time in Arizona allowed him to see the resemblance between cereal and the colors and textures of the southwestern desert. He used this idea and cleverly placed the cereal in front of enlarged photographs of actual Arizona skies. The result is this awesome set of landscape photos that look oddly realistic.
Emilie Griottes created these wonderfully colorful, and tasty looking, Pantone tarts for French Culinary Magazine Fricote. She created these beautiful color swatches by placing berries, carrots, lemons, candy other foods on a tart base. The bottom is lined with icing and marked with a Pantone color. I love the look and feel of this project!
Creative artists will use anything as a medium. These great works were all recreated with the help of various food items. There's everything ranging from peanut butter and jelly Mona Lisas to the Creation of Adam on a banana!
"I decided this past summer that I wanted to make a fun bento every day for my son's lunches this school year. I dug around online for a bit to see ideas and found some very fun sites that have recipes and tutorials for how to manipulate food into shapes and patterns that you don't envision initially when you think about it.
Day one I put together a cute, generic style bento. I knew immediately that I wanted to do Disney characters and other fun imagery. But little did I know, that crazy idea I had during the summer would be received so warmly with my Facebook friends. I started posting them daily there and got so many requests for a place to see them all at once. A book, a blog... a tumblog."
