It turns out that Oreos aren’t just cookies – they’re also a canvas for art.

As remarkable as the works are, what may be more impressive is the ability of these creative food artists to resist the urge to eat them long enough to unleash their imaginations.

Check out some examples compiled by Hello Giggles below.

There have been numerous pancake art videos over the past year, but YouTuber “Dancakes” may have the stand out winner with his Star Wars griddle portraits. They would be the centerpiece of any edible art gallery – if there was such a thing. I wish there was such a thing.

Examples include painstakingly detailed renderings of Captain Phasma, Han Solo, Chewbacca, BB-8 and more.

After transforming her parents’ house into a scare factory for Halloween, Los Angeles-based artist and baker Christine McConnell proceeded to give the dwelling a Christmas makeover to make it look like a full-scale gingerbread cottage.

The methods were similiar to those used for the Halloween decorations, utilizing hand-painted foamcore boards for all of the gingerbread cookie and candy cane decorations while nylon rope stood in for icing. To top it all off, McConnell staged a fairy tale photo with herself playing a hungry witch trying to lure Hansel and Gretel, played by her nieces Chloe and Keira.

This Absolut Marvel art concept by Indonesian designer Krizia Soetaniman is something that needs to happen. It won’t of course—something about kids and alcohol. I dunno. I wasn’t paying attention to reality on this.

Just make sure to bring your gloves and parka. The temperature inside the “ice box” is a balmy -21 degrees.

Arcade Brewery has partnered with Jimmy Palmiotti and Darwyn Cooke to create “The Adventures of Dutch Courage” beer with comic strips emblazoned on each bottle.

The Session Ale is brewed with juniper berries and lemon peel and described as an “easy drinking, malt-forward beer with a subtle gin cocktail quality”.

The comic strip is a twist on the famous Charles Atlas ads, although it recasts the bully as a female beach blond and the weakling as a hipster. Besides adding humor, the comic’s beach setting and retro feel also inspired the flavor, and is intended to “mimic the twists and turns of the story”.

The new ale will be launched on November 18 in four locations that have yet to be announced.

Hit the jump to check out examples of the comic labels.

You may have heard about the controversy surrounding Starbucks plain red cup this year. Starbucks claims the minimalist design isn’t intended to be part of a “war on Christmas”, rather it’s supposed to be blank canvas for customers to create their own stories. Carrah Aldridge, an Ohio-based artist, knows all about that.

She uses the cups as her canvas, and she creates a wide range of cool, creative art pieces using only sharpies, a white gel pen and copic markers. She posts her creations to her Instagram, and you can check out a selection of her astounding work after the break.

Artist Hedvig Astrom Kushner has developed a unique art project that involves blending smoothies to specifically match Pantone colors.

Here’s what Hedvig had to say about the project:

I make a lot of smoothies and noticed it kinda works like mixing paint. Add a strawberry, get a hot pink hue, add some spinach and get a subtle green. Pantone Smoothies is an artsy little project seeking an answer to the question: is it possible to create tasty smoothies in any Pantone color?

The process is pretty simple. I buy colored paper from a local art store, match it to a Pantone swatch, and make the smoothie to match whatever color the swatch is. Me and Mike photograph the fruit lay downs and smoothies using the colored paper as a backdrop, in a light box in the office basement.

The entire colorful series is up on her Pantone Smoothies website, but if you’d like to take a look at some highlights, you can check out a few additional pics after the break.
