Michael Phelps made of spices, and Britney Spears made of Cheetos are among several other edible famous people from a website dedicated to art with an expiration date, suspectandfugitive.com.
Some pieces are better than others by a long shot, but the common theme appears to be that is that all the ‘art’ uses either edible ‘stuff’ as a canvas (well, originally edible, I am not sure if you can eat the art in its finished form) or auxiliary food items, such as drinks from a soft drink.
You can even buy cards of some of the most popular pieces from the site.
