Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam in Half a Billion Sprinkles

(Photo: Michelle Wibowo)

Michelle Wibowo is a baker with ambition. We've previously seen her 3D photographic cakes, her architectural model cake of a college and her cake that looks like a realistic human baby. Now she's carried out a project even more complex: duplicating Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam using sprinkles, marshmallows, chocolate chips and baking crystals.

Wibowo estimates that she used over 10,000 marshmallows and approximately half a billion sprinkles to create a 1:1 scale model of Michelangelo's masterpiece on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Michelangelo used over 200 different colors, but Wibowo had to make do with sprinkles in 24 colors. Still, it's a good duplication, don't you think?

You can watch a video about the project here or see more photos here. Or you can see the painting in person at the St. Pancras Church in London.
