We’ve seen before how artists can craft wood into delicious-looking food, but what about the other way around? What if a food artist crafts actually-tasty food into something that is edible, but looks kinda gross?
Well now’s the time to find out, because Japanese Twitter user @iine_piroshiki recently posted the above image on Twitter.
“When I baked green and yellow sponge cake and put them on top of each other, it looked more like a sponge than I ever imagined,” the tweet read.
Despite being called “sponge cake,” I’ve never really seen or even thought of the resemblance before… until this moment.
It’s actually quite impressive how incredible sponge-like it looks. The attention to detail is incredible. Not only are there little white spots on top, just like a regular sponge would get, but even the texture of the two different-colored sections is different. The green part appears more rough and well-used, while the yellow part looks softer and porous.
Even after being told it’s cake, I’m not sure if I’d feel entirely comfortable taking a bite. Which I suppose in this case is a compliment to the chef!
Here’s how Japanese netizens reacted:
“No matter how I try, my brain cannot accept that it’s food. I wonder why?”
“The cream looks like soap bubbles.”
“My stomach doesn’t know what to do.”
“The green part looking well-used makes it even more realistic.”
“Imagine watching someone eating this, not knowing it was cake….”
“This deserves some sort of award.”
