German design studio Korefe created the world’s first completely edible cookbook. Designed as a limited edition series for the art and culinary publishing company Gerstenberg Publishing House, The Real Cookbook is an edible instruction manual made of 100% fresh pasta with a classic lasagna recipe embossed on its pages. The Real Cookbook can be opened, read, and then each page used as a layer for making the very same lasagna described on those pasta pages.
Hong Yi (who often goes by the nickname Red) creates new pieces all the time. Most recently she’s been making beautiful pieces using flower petals. Follow her ongoing work on Facebook and/or Instagram.
Do you like pancakes? If you like them even half as much as we do then it might be time for another field trip, this time to a little market in the Mexico City borough of Coyoacán. There we’ll find Rogelio, a “Hot cakes artist,” preparing some truly awesome pancakes.
You have to watch the video to appreciate just how skilled Rogelio is. He can make pancakes that resemble a wide variety of characters, including Jake the Dog, lover of bacon pancakes from Adventure Time, or even an edible portrait of yourself! Equipped with nothing more than a big ladle, he makes it look so effortless.
Rogelio, Master of Hotcakes, the Geyser of Awesome salutes you!

These gorgeous dresses are part of an awesome series entitled Wearable Foods. Created by Korean artist Yeonju Sung, each of these beautiful garments was elaborately made of edible materials such as red peppers, eggplants, bananas, green onions, lotus roots, white radishes, tomatoes, and red cabbage. The bottom two pieces are made of bubble gum.
While one may categorically define Sung’s good-enough-to-eat collection as sculptural foodwear, it is just as much a photographic series. The artist explains, “I create my own world of reality by generating a completely different set of images that contradict the conventional notion of food and clothes. As time goes by, the food from my work do go through a progression of disappearance due to the nature of food and gets gradually changed into the hideous state fading its shape and color in the process…”
Please pardon us while we have a short glee and sugar-induced freak-out. If you’ve been following the Geyser of Awesome for even a little while you’ll know how much we enjoy anthropomorphism, googly eyes, and sweets. We’ve just encountered an awesome combination of all three:
A punny ice cream parlour in Barcelona, Spain named Eyescream sells shaved ice cream imported from Taiwan that they serve up with tasty pairs of sauces and toppings and… wait for it… googly eyes made of sugar.
So your sweet frozen treat stares up at you while you eat it. Is the ice cream creature paralyzed with fear or excited that you’re about to enjoy it? It’s important to consider what one’s personified food might be thinking, so these are the questions we ask ourselves.
It looks like it’s time for another field trip. We hope you’ll join us. The more people, the more flavours and toppings we can try.

For a series of photos entitled Hunger Pains, New York-based photographer Ted Sabarese dressed his models in foods they were personally craving: bread, pasta, meat, vegetables, fruit and, our personal favourite, waffle pants.
The Geyser of Awesome salutes anyone who not only loves waffles so much that they’d wear them as a garment, but also be able to pull off the wearing off them with as much style as the beautifully-bearded model photographed by Ted Sabarese. We are impressed and hungry. We’d gladly take a serving of what each one of these models is wearing. (Followed by seconds of the waffles.)

"In honor of Pi day, I wanted to create a fun pi (and pie) centerpiece for sharing with a crowd. What you see before you are 101 mini pies adorned with pi to 100 decimal points, arranged in a giant square with circle in the middle and a pi symbol in the center. Circles, squares, and pi(e)s, oh my! The beauty of this project is that you can do it the hard way with homemade crust and filling (how I did it) or you can cut yourself some slack and use pre-made pie crust and pre-made filling or pudding and still get a great result. It’s easy to create a show stopping focal point for your Pi Day festivities that will be appreciated by math and pie lovers alike."

Popsicles are delicious treats, sometimes even on a cold winter’s day. But the trick is to eat them before they melt. Argentinian artist Luciana Rondolini creates the awesome popsicles you see here as art pieces entitled Calamidad cósmica (Cosmic Calamity). The enormous popsicles gradually melt while on display to serve as sweet reminders that time is fleeting and eventually everything disintegrates.
We don’t know who made this incredibly awesome Dalek pizza. Because there doesn’t seem to be a photo of the pizza taken after it was cooked, we’re hoping this deliciously hostile entrée didn’t exterminate them before they were able to eat it.

New York-based artist Jennifer Rubell specializes in creating awesome, large-scale art installations using food. This sweet pink creation is a small, enclosed room with interior walls and ceiling completely lined with bricks of cotton candy. Yum! Entitled Padded Cell, the room was created in 2010 and was part of an event that took place on November 6, 2010 called “The Red Party.”
"Padded cell is an 8’X16’ freestanding room constructed of basic building materials, with a single door that contains a plexiglass window. Inside, the walls and ceilingare padded with pink cotton candy, and a bare light bulb hangs in the center. The door is opened at 9pm, but the interior is visible through the window throughout the evening. The Red Party’s main dinner is served inside a Russian-themed constructivist set, and Padded Cell acts as an escape from that, an all-American funhouse that is at the same time confining, threatening, claustrophobic. It is an object that addresses the dark side of pleasure, the price of pleasure, the possibility that pleasure is its own punishment. Approximately 1,800 cones of cotton candy are used in its construction."
Yep, we wish we could’ve played (and dined) inside of it too.
