Sculpture artist Steve Casino creates unbelievable works of art using peanuts (yes, the actual nut), as his material. Casino removes the nuts from the shell, seals the shells with archival urethane and glued back together. Then constructs the product (taking up to 20 hrs.) and coated in clear acrylic when finished. And finally, product is sealed in a glass dome. This incredible process produces even more incredible results.

Canada-based cake designer Kylie Mangles (Freshly Squeez’d) captured the most uncanny details in this edible sculpture that looks almost like an illustration. Mangles decided to recreate an illustration by Erick Flores entitled “Cutout Ralph.” The image is half likeness and half dissected body of Ralph Wiggum from The Simpsons.
