Gingerbread Optimus Prime


Anyone currently making anything made of gingerbread… Please stop, because Gingerbread Optimus Prime has won the internet. Created by Caroline Eriksson, the edible autobot is made entirely of gingerbread and melted sugar.

Although the gingerbreadobot is the Michael Bay movie version. So, it comes equipped with laughable dialogue and a scrawny fondant Shia LaBeouf.*

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.
