Famous Works of Art Recreated With Jelly Beans

Artist Kristen Cumings recreated a few classic paintings using thousands of jelly beans. Commissioned by Jelly Belly for their Jelly Belly Masterpieces of Confectionary Art seriesCumings spent about 50-60 hours on each 4′ x 6′ mural.

Spray adhesive was used to stick the beans to canvas, then the finished product is coated with acrylic for protection, and to discourage licking of the art. A few of the recreations include The Mona Lisa, Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night, and Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring.

The Candy Bike is a Sweet Ride

Brought to us by Brooklyn-based art student Britta Hope, The Candy Bike was conceived for a 3D design project. With the tagline of “Treat Yourself,” the bike was designed to make you want to lick the wheels and handlebars, but it’s actually meant to be a cupcake delivery vehicle — and help score an “A” in 3D.

Piñata Cookies

This Cinco de Mayo, besides having some bad Tex-Mex and watered-down Margaritas, you can whip up a batch of Piñata Cookies. Brought to us by She Knows, the colorful cookies are a fun way to get into the spirit, without having to climb a tree, or risk getting whacked with a wiffle ball bat.

Sriracha Lollipops Exist

The ultimate honor for a food item — at least here in the states — is to be impaled on the end of a stick. So we have to wonder why a Sriracha Lollipop took so long. Nonetheless, the king of condiments finally gets the respect it deserves, and is brought to us by Lollyphile.
