London-based food artist Michelle Wibowo of Michelle Sugar Art recently used nothing but cake decorations - miniature marshmallows and sprinkles - to recreate The Creation of Adam. She spent 168 hours and used 10,000 Cake Angels marshmallows and around half a billion cake sprinkles to complete her version of Michelangelo’s masterpiece. It measures 5.7 meters (18.7 ft) wide by 2.8 meters (9 ft) tall.

Set on plywood, the piece was first divided into grids and then Wibowo spent three days sketching the outline with pencil. While Michelangelo’s original painting was made with over 200 colors, Wibowo used just 24 different colored sprinkles to make her creation. The work is actually edible with the glue being made of a mixture of icing sugar, butter and vanilla frosting.

Michelle calls her sugary creation ‘The Baking of Adam' and it's currently on display at London’s St. Pancras Church as part of ongoing celebrations of the 450th anniversary of Michelangelo’s death in Rome at the age of 88.
