Gingerbread Smaug Will Help Guard Your Christmas Treasure

smaug

If you made any gingerbread structures for Christmas… prepare to feel bad about yourself.

Gingerbread Smaug was created by 27-year old Caroline Erikkson. Each one of the dragon’s impenetrable scales was created out of cookie, along with its impressive wings and fire-breathing noggin.

Create one of your own to help guard your Christmas loot. Then make some dwarf gingerbread men and recreate that scene in The Hobbit where they get dunked in milk and have their heads bitten off.*

may or may not have happened in the actual movie.

This Pizza’s Got 99 Cheeses And A Swiss Ain’t One

99-cheese-pizza

The next time you order a pizza with ‘extra cheese’… keep in mind that there’s a chef in Melbourne laughing at you.

Johnny di Francesco recently created a 99-Cheese Pizza. For those scoring at home, that’s roughly 98 more cheeses than what should be allowed.

Nonetheless, the pizza is made possible by di Francesco melting 94 cheeses into one gooey concoction that’s then spread over the crust and cooked. The remaining five are added afterward. Extra cheese, not available.

Fast Food and Junk Food Photographed As Renaissance Paintings

Kopie

It takes quite a bit to make fast food aesthetically-pleasing. Luckily, there was a little something called the Renaissance, which could help make anything from creepy man-babies to sub-par cheeseburgers look good.

Photographer Rebecca Rütten has taken advantage of the art movement, and has prettied-up some fast food with Contemporary Pieces. The photography series, inspired by the look of Renaissance paintings, poses a few still-lifes and cloaked subjects holding fast food.

Thankfully, there’s no man-babies eating McNuggets.

Artist Massimo Gammacurta works brilliantly with many different mediums. But his most interesting and enticing work appears to be in candy.

Enter, Kamasugar — a series of sugar sculptures formed into a number of sex positions. A stick is inserted [hee-hee] into the vibrantly-colored sculptures, making them the most erotic lollipops possible. NSFW lollies below.
