Cake designer Michelle Wibowo has given a legendary Italian artist a sugary run for his money. To drum up publicity for her company, Michelle Sugar Art, the food artist replicated Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam, from the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, but in frosting, sprinkles, and marshmallows.

The laborious project took Wibowo, who once created a giant Beyoncé portrait from oreo pops, almost 200 hours. The project, commissioned by Cake Angels, took place to honor the 450th anniversary of Michelangelo’s death.

You know what Michelangelo loved? Marshmalllows and sprinkles.

Wibowo says:

“Britain is currently gripped by baking fever with a real emphasis on unique designs and showmanship. When we learnt about Michelangelo’s anniversary celebrations, we really wanted to join in and challenge the boundaries of cake design by immortalising his most heavenly creation in our own special way, using our range of versatile and vibrant sprinkles, proving that even cake can become a fantastic art canvas.”

We’re pretty awed by this crazy-large food piece.
