SURPRISING Things You Can Make From Food

We’re told at an early age to not play with our food. But we’re here to tell if you people didn’t mess about with the stuff that could also easily end up on your plate, we might not have a lot of interesting things in this world.

9. Food That Glitters
In the past year, glitter on foods made waves on social media. For some reason, people get drawn to shiny things, even when it comes to the food we put into our bodies. Edible glitter is not the same thing as the glitter you use in arts and crafts, so if that was your hestiance, now you can be rest assured. If you wate a cupcake adorning in this sparkling dust, then it was most likely the non-toxic kind. Most of that edible glitter comes from ingredients such as sugar, maltodextrin, acacia, cornstarch, and food coloring. But not all “non toxic” glitter is safe for consumption, as some may still be made of plastic.

8. Food Powered Clock
If you paid attention to science class in elementary school, then you know you could use things like lemons, potatoes, and apples to power a clock. If you’ve never tried it yourself, it may seem unbelievable and complicated, but you can do the experiment yourself rather easily. Through the process of electrolysis, the acidic elements of lemons or apples help power the clock when it gets connected through either a copper or zinc electrode. While you probably can’t keep a fruit powered clock for long (unless you’re willing to always replace the fruit) it’s still cool to know how it all works.

7. Potato Jewelry
You might not even recognize when a piece of jewelry was made from potatoes since artists can do a really good job of making them look like plastic or stone. Yes, potato jewelry exists. And depending on how well you make your potato beads and pendants, they can last for a few years. Potato beads get coated in acrylic paint and an acrylic sealer, ensuring the piece of potato you cut to make a colorful bracelet doesn’t rot on the spot. A plus to using potatoes means you can shape the beads to anyway you want them to look and paint them any kind of color.

6. Soap
That doesn’t mean go eat your soap you having chilling in the bathroom. Soap has been around for a long time, thankfully, and so it shouldn’t be shocking that things like milk, beer, fruit, or even maple syrup like these maple syrup bars. Not only does maple syrup smell good as a soap, but it also provides a nice amount of moisture, something that an artificially scented bar of supposed maple soap wouldn’t provide on its own.

5. Swiss Army Chocolate
Just think of the people you would scare off by whipping out one of these chocolate bars. If they just looked closely, however, they would have seen that it was a foil wrapping over a piece of chocolate, not an actual Swiss Army knife. These candies also hail from Switzerland, and even were made in a molding to look like a knife, even when you take the foil off. A pack of 6 pieces of these cost $27, distributed by Victorinox and made of praline chocolate.

4. Foodscapes
We’ve mentioned some food art earlier on this list. But nothing quite measures up to the way photographer Carl Warner does food art. Warner’s known for his projects that he calls “foodscapes” wherein he takes any kind of food, from cheese, fish, lollipops, and broccoli, like this broccoli forest, to make his art. The London-based photographer can make entire miniature outdoor landscapes that look surreal yet real at the same time. The collection of photos got popular upon their release in 2008. It takes real talent to make mountains out of cheese and oceans out of sardines.

3. Gingerbread Houses
We’re not just talking about the gingerbread houses you make during the wintertime as a fun activity or for small competitions for school. In Texas, there’s an actual house made of gingerbread, the largest in the world. The house took a ton of butter to make, not a lot, but a literal ton--along with 7,200 eggs. The house’s calorie count reaches 35.8 million calories over an area of 2,250 square feet. Located in the town of Bryan, the house was built by the Traditions club in order to raise money for St. Joseph’s Hospital’s trauma center.

2. Pumpkin Art
This makes the stuff you do for Halloween look like child’s play. American sculptor Ray Villafane made a name for himself sculpting pumpkins. And not just the typical way you usually do it by buying a kit from the store and spending a few hours in the kitchen carving a pumpkin. Villafane’s pumpkin career started when he was teaching art at Bellaire in Michigan and had to help out for the school’s Halloween decorations. Since then, he’s been creating elaborate sculptures made from the orange gourd. You may have seen him on CBS Evening News and the Food Network showing off his skills.
