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.
We were just reading an article about how it turns out that cleaning your ears is not only bad for you, but also outright dangerous. Thank goodness we can still satisfy the urge to root around inside our ears with this impressively disgusting Ear Wax Candy. The bright pink plastic ear, full of soft, fruity candy that resembles ear wax in colour and consistency, comes with a plastic swab that you use to dig out and consume the yellow confection. Er, yum?
(And if that’s not enough for you, there’s also Gummy Ear Wax)

Could this be the cutting edge of edible fashion?
For a beautiful and playful new series entitled Barbapapa, photographer Isabelle Chapuis photographed models wearing cotton candy as hair, jackets, belts, and coats.
Perfect for fashionistas with a sweet tooth.
Do you think you could eat an entire car made of chocolate? Philadelphia-based food sculpting duo Jim Victor and Marie Pelton made this awesome life-size chocolate replica of the No. 18 Toyota Camry M&M’s racing car. They layered melted chocolate, cocoa, and cocoa butter onto a frame to form the exterior of the race car. Yum!
