The Cypriot artist Maria Aristidou has made a name for herself creating art from food. As you can see on her Facebook page, she initially began using coffee and cotton as her medium, creating lush works from the simple combination. However, the artist has now moved on to an even more appetizing canvas – cake.

Working with a local bakery, Maria has recreated some of the world’s most famous paintings on the cakes they produce. Each cake takes the artist between 6-10 hours, not including the time it takes to actually bake the cake. But the results are well-worth the time she spends, as they’re remarkably close recreations.
