    Exquisite - or what?!

    Got these in an email from my son today - never have I seen such delicate artistry and talent - and all done with frosting!!!

    Yes - these little miracles made with marzipan - almond paste with some addition of egg white or yolks. Had to let you see them - first time I have.

    All I know so far QK is it is a lady - maybe find out somehow. But yes, they are incredibly beautiful IMO.

    Those are absolutely amazing, but I can't resist the following:

    So she won't be out to play.

    We'll never hear her whiney cry
    Or have to feel if she is dry.
    We'll never hear her asking "Why?"

    Someone ate the baby.
    It's absolutely clear
    Someone ate the baby
    'Cause the baby isn't here.

    We'll give away her toys and clothes.
    We'll never have to wipe her nose.

    Someone ate the baby.
    What a frightful thing to eat!
    Someone ate the baby
    Though she wasn't very sweet.

    It was a heartless thing to do.
    The policemen haven't got a clue.
    I simply can't imagine who
    Would go and (burp) eat the baby.

    Bob - nice ''ditty'' - makes me think of the ''baby went out with the bath water'' too LOL!

    Rob - I have no idea where to find any more info but will check it out later when time - see if any to be found. I think I can say too - they are breath-taking in their exquisiteness.

    Well some digging yielded some info - they are still exquisite IMO but seemingly not the edible variety!! That was it seems to good to be true. Nonetheless, this lady has a rich talent.

    http://www.snopes.com/photos/arts/marzipan.asp

    Human babies, however, are not something we generally consider to be a visually appealing form for edibles (particularly when presented as realistically as shown in the images above), a fact that perhaps explains the appeal of these photographs ? we're drawn to them as a fascinating example of culinary and artistic craftsmanship, but at the same time we're disquieted that the thought of eating them is almost a vicarious form of cannibalism.

    Fortunately, we don't have to ponder the deeper meaning of the symbolism here, because the items pictured above are not made of marzipan, nor are they edible. They're 2- to 5-inch sculptures created by artist Camille Allen (including some entries from her Shell Baby line of miniatures), and they're made from Prosculpt polymer clay and mohair. Definitely not the kind of thing most of us would find palatable.
