Carl Warner - Foodscapes

A couple of years back, I did a post on Carl Warner's Foodscapes. I was blown-away once again by his breathtaking creations on a recent visit to his site.

You'll have to click on the images to really enjoy the details of the landscapes.

London Skyline

Asparagus Houses of Parliament, watermelon dome....
26 different types of fruits and vegetables were used to depict this scene.

The London Eye - made of green beans and baby cherry tomatoes.

The Tower Bridge - made of runner beans, celery, and Shredded Wheat atop pineapple slices.

Carl's Village

A lipsmacking village of chocolate mallow cookie pie, biscottis, cookies and other sweet delights.


Noodle floors, physalis lanterns, a river of savoy cabbage....


An island of coconuts, passion fruit, melons, lychees, kumquats, mangoes, lemons and limes; tropical fishes of a variety of fruits and vegetables

Way Out West

An trailer of crusty white loaf; pepperoni Telegraph poles with black spaghetti wires and a dusting of oats and cereals on the ground.

Hills of cheddar, a jetty of breadsticks. The steamboat is made of bread with a celery funnel.

Radicchio skies and coconut haystacks

Celery forest
