Cupcakes have become a beloved dessert over the last few years, so what better way to pay sweet tribute to them then through a towering installation like Muffin Tops by Leah Foster? Absolute heaven for some, it nevertheless recalls the cannibalistic witch from 'Hansel and Gretal,' who lived deep in the forest in a house constructed of cake and confectionery.

Constructed at ConArtist in New York and Guerilla Arts in Texas, Muffin Tops by Leah Foster, a NYC-based mixed media artist, involves 10,000 real cupcakes that have been strung on fishline to suspend them from the ceiling. Measuring 10 feet tall, the structures are particularly colorful due to the use of differently hued icing and paper cups.
