Famous Art Museums Recreated With Candy


Guggenheim Museum, New York. Icing, gingerbread, cotton candy, candy wrappers, licorice, sugar.

Finally, art that everyone can get into… Unless you’re diabetic. A few famous art museums from around the world were recreated by artists Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves, using various forms of gingerbread and candy.

Constructed and then photographed in black and white — the museums look real enough, that you’ll want to walk right in and get cultured. Or just chew on the walls.

The Scream Brownies


Edvard Munch’s The Scream is one of the most iconic, parodied, and reproduced paintings in art history. Now it’s a brownie.

Brought to us by Sugary Winzy, The Scream Cheese Brownies are made with regular brownie batter that’s topped with cream cheese. The cream cheese is then ‘painted’ with a toothpick and baked. Stop screaming, the brownies will be ready in no time.
