Edible Art: Jell-O Town

I’m not a fan of Jell-O. I’ve never liked it, not even as a kid. It never really satisfied me as a dessert and, flavorwise, it has always struck me as boring, but Jell-O as an art form, now that’s something that I can get behind and artist Liz Hickok would be just the gal to do it!

Liz is a San Francisco-based artist who transforms Jell-O, the humble dessert of childhood, into fun, colorful cityscapes, complete with wobbly buildings and edible bridges. San Francisco, New York, Wilmington. Liz has constructed each one out of Jell-O. She’s even turned the fictional town of Twin Peaks into a Jell-O paradise, a fact that makes me love her even more.

Those are just astonishing - they really are art, not just cool-looking food! I had thought making jelly modern began and ended with Bompas & Parr, but this goes to a whole other level...

Hey, Penguin! Yeah, I still haven't written my Bompas & Parr post, but I couldn't resist posting Liz's work!

I used to play on Neopets, where they had a place called Jelly World. I can't believe someone actually went and made it!
