Food art brings my appreciation for food to the next level — and Kristen Cumings’ intricate jelly bean mosaics of comic book superheroes are the latest example of culinary masterpieces that look too beautiful to eat. Cumings ordinarily works with acrylics and oil paints, but she decided to try something new and different — and now, she can add “jelly beans” to her list of mediums. Cumings’ latest artistic endeavor involves creating superhero portraits using only jelly beans.

What exactly does this artistic process involve? Watch Cumings in action, because it’s seriously impressive.

It turns out that jelly beans aren’t just a delicious treat — they’re also an amazing medium for artists. Is there anything this candy can’t do?
