You know when you’re a kid and your parents tell you not to play with food?

Well these artists have broken this rule, and by playing with edible things they came up with incredible art pieces. From desserts, to main courses and fruits, here is a group of photos all capturing the amazing creations of several masterminds. The only thing that these artists have in common is the protagonist of their sculptures: food.
