Edible and Functional Chocolate LEGOS

lego-1

Artist Akihiro Mizuuchi has come up with a way to combine a few of our favorite things… chocolate and LEGOS. And, not only are the candy bricks nice to look at, but they’re completely functional.

Assemble any structure or pop culture character you’d like. Or, keep it simple and construct yourself a chocolate bar. We know, LEGOS are hard.

If you like LEGOS, and are in need of some cool kitchen tools, check out The Cooking Blocks Utensil Set.

Fat & Furious Burger Makes Beautiful Quirky Burger Sculptures

furious-burger

French designers Thomas and Quentin create art out of burgers. However, they’re not the high-end fancy-schmancy restaurant burgers that appear to be all the rage. The creative duo behind Fat & Furious Burger creates quirky photographs with a burger as the main subject.

Again, these are not your average burgers, as they’re usually transformed into other objects, or given some legs to become something like Crabzilla. Either way, Thomas and Quentin swear that, regardless of the methods and materials used, the burgers in their work remain edible.

That’s good, because we’re gonna need that sushi burger in our belly, pronto.

Creative director Dudi Ben Simon brings us a series of optical illusions using everyday objects and food items — coincidentally to recreate everyday objects and food items. How creatively meta.

See more of Simon’s great photography work over at Instagram.

Chocolate Mill, A Large Chocolate Cylinder Containing Hidden Geometric Patterns

chocolatemill01

When it comes to chocolate… you never know what you’re gonna get. This is especially true when it comes to Chocolate Mill — a large cylinder made of chocolate that contains a series of hidden geometric patterns.

Brought to us by the collaborative efforts of Studio Wieki Somers and chocolatier Rafael Mutter, a crank-turned blade is used to reveal each layer of patterns with a kaleidoscope-type effect.

Great…but how long before we get to the nougat?

Coffee Cup Art Left Behind For Others To Find

coffee-cup-art-5

Starting the day off with coffee is good. Add some coffee cup art to the mix and suddenly your morning is a little bit more tolerable.

If you’re lucky enough to frequent the same coffee shop as artist Jimmy T., you could have that super-morning. Jimmy creates illustrations on takeaway coffee cups, and then leaves them behind for patrons of the shop to find.

Of course, this isn’t before Jimmy documents the drawings on his Tumblr blog, Morning Coffee Cup Art, where you can see his ongoing series.
