We got nearly 200 great entries to our redesign Valentine challenge. And on last week's show, Elizabeth Gilbert picked the winning entry: a bouquet of rolled bacon strips that look like roses (only yummier!) by Sarah Tisdale. As Gilbert said so aptly, 'Nothing can compete with a bacon bouquet.'
It made me wonder why we don't use food more often as an artistic material. Aside from the ice-swan centerpiece or the happy face of chocolate chips on your pancakes (if you're very lucky), it's just not done enough, in my book.
That's why I was particularly blown away by the food sculptures on the site fabulously40.com (some of which are below). These people are serious about playing with their food.
