Don't expect to find macaroni necklaces or macaroni glued to construction paper here -- though, there is a pasta portrait of Rachael Ray's face and intricate sculptures made of apples. When we say food art, we really mean art made from food -- think of portraits and paintings made from unexpected edible materials and even art made from food long past its expiration date. Take a look at some of the different types of food art in our slideshow below -- each slide links to a slideshow filled with even more ideas, so make sure you check them all out.
