Rice Krispies Treats Sculpted Into Playful Pop Culture Designs

There seems to be no limit to what New York-based artist Jessica Siskin can do with Rice Krispies cereal.

Siskin blends food coloring with the breakfast cereal in order to add playful personality to her creations. Her Instagram account features everything from Hello Kitty, Elmo, and a green Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle to a pink boombox and a bright orange bag of Cheetos. “Everything tastes better when it’s made of rice krisp treat. Except pizza,” she explains. "I honestly don't know how to make anything else.”
