An artist has to get inspiration from somewhere, and what better muse is there than chocolate?
Imgur user Mikepants posted an array of food-based sculptures whittled out of wood and painted to look ridiculously realistic. Seriously, these little works of art are a dentist's worst nightmare. It's like those wax staging fruits you see in furniture stores, but instead of just tasting awful, they'd break your teeth.
The full post below includes a beautifully executed shrimp, some tasty-looking croissants, and dangerously real potato chips, among other favorite foods. Take a look:
This Burger Comes on a Fried Cheese Bun
Yeah, it's uncanny. Best looking croissants outside of France right there.
