Your parents have probably told you at some point in your life to stop playing with your food. Well, trying to pick all the carrots or celery from your dish is one thing, but it's another story when you create masterpieces from them. Some like to draw with a pen or paintbrush, while some like to create art pieces with food that are so mesmerising you will hesitate to eat them.

1. Leesamantha

This mother of two is not only a great cook, but also an immensely creative food artist. It all started when Samantha was pregnant with her second child. She thought that if she made the food look fun and appealing, her eldest daughter will be able to eat independently while she took care of her youngest child.  A lot of her food art is inspired by popular cartoons and movies.
