In the age of Instagram, you鈥檙e likely barraged with pictures of food that looks too pretty to eat. That perfect runny egg yolk on toast. That caramel-swirled ice cream with flecks of sea salt. That cronut with glazed bacon on top. Despite their good looks, you can (and should) eat those things. A few artists around the globe, however, have taken it upon themselves to create food that is literally too pretty to eat, crocheting, knitting and sewing Pinterest-perfect meals with a needle and thread. Here are 16 of our favorite not-so-edible pieces.
