There is no such thing as food that’s too cute to eat — because food should be eaten, always — but if there were, these adorable, edible Disney characters would qualify.
Artist Erin Jang, working with the blog Oh My Disney, has been crafting whimsical masterpieces out of regular ingredients such as salami, hot dog buns, zucchini, seaweed and rice. Her muses? Disney characters. Olaf from Frozen, Flounder from The Little Mermaid and Pluto count among her distinguished subjects. What better way to get kids to try new foods then disguising them as a beloved cartoon character?
Our inner Disney nerds wish we could have Jang over for dinner. Fortunately, her pieces look easy enough to recreate at home.

Olaf, from Frozen:
Here non-Disney work is inspiring too: Take this face made entirely of Christmas desserts.
Jang has us fantasizing about our dream evening: Curling up with The Aristocrats and eating a cat face made of candy.
