Food Artist Creates Charming Characters That Look Too Adorable to Eat

Interior designer and baker Song Rattanakosate (aka @SongSweetSong) produces adorably endearing creations completely out of food. Her edible sculptures comprise entire dishes, both savory and sweet, with different ingredients serving their own visual purpose in the cute scenes. Rattanakosate's imaginative perspective offers ingenious uses for food, like having bacon double as a blanket for a sleepy hard-boiled yolk, having salmon and rice mimic animals' bodies, and using toast as a blank canvas for creating a myriad of charming cartoon characters.

Rattanakosate documents her delectable meals on her popular Instagram account. They look almost too good to eat, but that hasn't stopped people from wanting to buy her culinary designs. Through Sweeten Up Cafe, you can purchase her made-to-order cookies. Or, if you'd rather try making them on your own, Rattanakosate sells kitchen tools through Sweeten Up Factory.
