Candy Art: Candidate Figurines

Cindy Things

Art is by no means limited to the canvas depicting bowls of fruit, and candy artist Cindy Atmore proves this. Like L.A. Burdick’s Campaign Chocolates, she has used the upcoming November election as an inspiration, fashioning mini figurines out of fondant depicting all the major twenty-three candidates who ran for the presidential nomination. Each figure bears a remarkable resemblance to the respective candidate and works as fine pieces to display on your work desk or adorn a coffee table. They even give off an alluring smell of candy.

Even better, they’re all edible! The figurines have been described as tasting like the marshmallow pieces found in Lucky Charms cereal (and is there really a better marshmallow cereal?). For the calorie conscious, Cindy estimates that each one contains roughly 400 calories, which isn’t bad when you consider the volume of sugar per candidate.

Also posted on her website that features these lovable works are figurines of mentalists and magicians. If you’re not interested in purchasing a figurine, I still highly recommend that you check out her galleries to see the high quality of craftsmanship and hilarious use of props (my favorite is Harry Blackstone sawing a Peeps bunny in half).

Cindy’s work has appeared in a variety of magazines and you might even catch her on an upcoming special on The Food Network. Obviously, she is a rising star in the candy art world, and you don’t want to miss her work. Even those who don’t like candy (if there are such people out there), will appreciate the levity and skill inherent in her art, and the fact that they’re made of candy just makes them all the better.
