While you may spot a formaldehyde tank from across the room and immediately associate it with Damien Hirst, he is an artist that works with a diverse range of media. One of my favorites is a group of works known as his Spot Paintings. As you may have realized, I love to recreate works of art through food, so I decided to create spotted cookies in honor of Damien Hirst
It’s time to celebrate. What better way to celebrate than with twinkies! After receiving a box of twinkies in a care package, my friends and I decided to create one of Jeff Koons’ pieces from his Celebration series. We attempted to replicate his famous Balloon Dog only instead of metallic stainless steel we managed with twinkies. Using skewers to hold the twinkies together, it turned out to be much more challenging than we expected. But with patience, laughs and lots of twinkies, our twinkie dog finally stood up! It looks similar, right? Best of all its edible.
