Watch A Cake Artist Recreate Michelangelo’s “The Creation Of Adam” With Frosting, Marshmallows, And Sprinkles

This week marked the 450th anniversary of the death of Michelangelo. Cake artist Michelle Wibowo commemorated the occasion in a very, ahem, sweet way, by recreating his masterpiece, “The Creation Of Adam,” using frosting, marshmallows, and sprinkles. The resulting edible artwork is breathtaking (not to mention drool-inducing), and the entire process — which took 168 hours and half a billion cake sprinkles — was documented in this time-lapse video. It’s calming and slightly hypnotic to watch her turn a pile of sprinkles into God. And now I really want a piece of cake. [YouTube via Design Taxi]
