This delicious device was made by Redditor getoffmypropartay. We’re completely torn between trying to travel through it and wanting to take a great big bite out of it.

Not content with decorative 2D images, under Kazuki’s skilled hands frothy milk rises out of the mugs to resemble any number of pop culture characters that are sure to put a smile on your face.
Order two drinks and your beverages might be served up appearing to interact with each other. Coffee is already a great pick-me-up, but these kawaii beverages might be verging on over-the-counter anti-depressant territory.
Follow Kazuki Yamamoto on twitter to keep up with his delightful, drinkable artwork.
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…”
New York-based art director Kaisa Haupt creates awesome sandwiches that look like all sorts of different creatures, animals, monsters, and other oddities. Kaisa then photographs and shares these delicious creations for an ongoing series entitled Sandwich Monsters.
Here you see “Captain Hamerica” (Marvel Comics), “Punxsutawney Phil’ly Cheeseteak”, the “Lox-ness Monster”, an “Unidenti-fried Flying Obj-egg”, a tantalizingly cute “Purrr-ito”, and the “Salami’ese Twins”.

Even though we’ve barely recovered from our most recent visit, it’s time to grab a bib and head back over to the Department of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys
Last week we posted about an amazingly over the top Bloody Mary created by Sarah Jayne Pickart at O’Davey’s Irish Pub in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Sarah works at O’Davey’s on the first Sunday of every month. The pub doesn’t open until 11am, but eager patrons start queueing outside as early as 8am in hopes of getting their eager hands on one of Sarah’s awesome creations.
“While there, she works up between 100 and 150 very insane Marys, each of which 1) gets loaded with more food than most people eat in a day, 2) follows a changing theme (next month’s is “Props to the Pig”), and 3) COSTS FIVE FRIGGIN’ DOLLARS. God bless you, Midwest.”
It seems that the folks over at Thrillist were so impressed with Sarah’s Milwaukee Brewer’s Bloody Mary that they challenged her to outdo herself, and boy did she ever succeed. Behold the glorious monstrosity that is the “”Wisconsinite Delight” Bloody Mary.
Here is a complete list of ingredients (It’s a doozy):
And remember, it only costs $5:
“…despite giving away a shopping cart for $5, thanks to the crowds, they make more money on the days Sarah’s making bloody magic than the days she’s not.”
Sarah Jayne Pickart, the Geyser of Awesome salutes you!
If there’s a bloody mary out there that doesn’t pale in comparison to this one, we’d love to see it.

The last time we visited with Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) he was making a mouthwatering Bacon Weave Quesadilla. Nick and his marvelous woven bacon are back, this time with/as a truly tantalizing Bacon Weave Taco:
“I know that tacos with shells made out of bacon have been done before, but none of the ones I’ve seen looked very appetizing to me. It seems like people sort of took the easy way out when making them and just tossed their bacon over a metal object, made sure the strips overlapped a little so they’d stick together and either baked or deep fried it like that so their shells just end up looking like squares of bacon that have been folded in half. Long story short, most of the bacon taco shells out there just don’t look very taco-shaped.”
And if that wasn’t enough to put a smile on your face, click here to see him molding a larger piece of cotton candy into another self-portrait.
Nathan Shields, master of creating truly awesome pancakes (previously featured here), recently created something that might just be better than breakfast in bed: a homemade pancake breakfast that’s shaped like a Magic Treehouse.
We can’t stop thinking of tasty ways to decorate this amazing meal. Strawberry slices would make sweet shingles for the house itself. Make a ladder out of bacon. Add whipped cream for a snowy winter scene or syrup for rain. Just be sure to make your additions quickly, because pancakes are best while they’re still hot and fresh.
We’ve found a new addition for our collection of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys. This one comes with appetizers, lunch, snacks, nibbles, and more snacks. It’s the work of Midwestern food wizards at O’Davey’s Irish Pub located in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.
This ultimate hangover cure is topped with an extensive beer chaser consisting of pop corn, bacon, peanuts, beans, sausage, pretzel, sliders, a pickle and (this is Wisconsin after all) a cracker and cheese curd. Plus a Brewers flag.
“That’s amazing. I’m coming to America just for these,” a reader remarked in the Reddit forum.
An Australian commented: “As an Aussie, I can’t help but look at that and think… ‘Is this actually a thing??’ Are you serious? You can actually order that?”
It sure is. And it’s awesome. Just make sure you’ve got a few friends to share it with and some Tums on hand for later.
Alright Japan, now you’re just toying with us. Your relentless onslaught of weirdness and cuteness has us glued to our monitors lest we miss the next awesome thing you create or do. We’re putty in your hands. Now you’ve gone and made a series of photographs of cats dressed up as creative interpretations of sushi toppings, resting comfortably atop giant mounds of sushi rice, secured by enormous strips of nori. This one has pretty much rendered us speechless.
These “Sushi Cats” or “Neko-Sushi” are the work of Japan-based company Tange & Nakimushi Peanuts. Who needs to shower or go to work when there is stuff like this to see?
“According to the History of Sushi Cats video, the cats are a magical and historical creature that have been influencing humans since the beginning of time. Tange & Nakimushi Peanuts has released a mobile game app for iPhone and Android phones featuring the Sushi Cats. They also have an online store that offers photo prints, postcards and more (only available in Japan).”
Neko-Sushi is an extremely unusual life-form consisting of a cat on top of a portion of sushi rice. Although several references have come down to us through history from various researchers and witnesses, their existence is still shrouded in mystery and actual sightings remain rare.
There are several academics who have devoted their lives to the study of these creatures. According to a number of these, Neko-Sushi make use of gaps in space to come to us from an alternate dimension. Beyond these “gaps” lies the world of the Neko-Sushi in which, it is recently understood, lies the true identity of the cats that dwell with us here in the human dimension.
We can’t look away. It’s just too cute… too strange… too awesome.
