A DOUBLE dose of Whimsy, and YUM.

February 14, 2009

The Caucus Blog just posted a story about pastry artist, Zilly Rosen, who this weekend took 5,600 of her own cupcakes and constructed, in honor of Lincoln’s birthday and the new President, a side-by side portrait of the two presidents, made entirely out of the aforementioned cupcakes. The portrait was “installed” at the Smithsonian and put on display until 5pm this afternoon.

President Lincoln has never looked so tasty.

President Lincoln has never looked so tasty.

From The Caucus:

Just before 5 p.m., after a five-hour display period, the cupcakes started flying off the ground as salivating spectators devoured the mural from the outside in. Within minutes nearly all of Lincoln’s face had disappeared. But an hour later — thanks to either full stomachs or a respect for the sitting president — the majority of Mr. Obama’s face was left intact.

The mural had something for all tastes: Lincoln, on the right, was recreated in vanilla cupcakes with chocolate butter-cream frosting. Mr. Obama’s likeness, on the left, was made out of chocolate cupcakes with vanilla butter-cream frosting. The stripes on the American flag backdrop were red velvet.

Incredible, and DELICIOUS.
