In honor of the upcoming award show season, New York City bakery Eleni's has put together a series of decorated cookies that commemorate each of the Oscar Nominees with edible illustrations of their faces. The cookies creatively pay tribute to each of the actors and actresses with an edible set of realistic portraits.

Eleni's cookies are an ideal example of edible fandom and the large amount of pop cultural influence the Oscars have on viewers. The cookies are made from sugar cookie dough that is then covered with a detailed portrait painting of each of the celebrities honored made using vivid food coloring shades. The cookies are available in three different sets including Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Picture.
