55 Incredible Edible Art Innovations

From Obama Sushi to Peach Sculptures

— April 30, 2010 — Art & Design
I just ate, yet my stomach grumbles when I see each one of these edible art innovations. Telling a child not to play with their food is just stifling their artistic creativity.

I've never been tempted to eat art before, but I'd have to make an exception for more than a few of these edible art innovations. I never stop eating.

Implications - There is a high demand amongst today's consumers to be able to interact with the products in which they invest. Businesses that offer products that serve multiple purposes or function with which the consumer can engage will experience high rates of success in society.
