An anniversary artwork with a difference

This year marks the 450th anniversary of Michelangelo‘s death.  As part of the celebrations in England, a cake decorator, Michelle Wibowo, decided to reproduce God’s creation of Adam from Michelangelo’s painted ceiling of the Sistine Chapel – in icing and sprinkles!

Here’s how she did it, in time-lapse photography.  I recommend watching it in full-screen mode.

You know, I can’t help feeling that Michelangelo would have been pleased . . .

  1. hopefully all that can be embalmed in clear acryllic or something to preserve it. After all that work, it'd be a shame to lose that to decay! It'd make quite the advertisement at her place of business.
