Cupcake sledding

From several friends on Facebook, a link to an NPR story of September 10th, “Photos: Enter A World Of Cupcake Sledding And Broccoli Lawns” by Maria Godoy, beginning:

Lots of us play with our food. But for photographer Christopher Boffoli, it’s become a full-time career.

Boffoli rose to fame a couple of years ago. You may have seen some of his photographs — amusing dioramas featuring miniature plastic figurines in dramatic settings crafted from food — when they went viral back in 2011. More than 200 such images — at least half of which, Boffoli says, have not been previously published — are collected in a new book, Big Appetites.

Boffoli’s scenarios, and especially his captions, evoke New Yorker cartoons — many are dark and humorous.

Here’s the cupcake sledding:

More images available on the NPR site.

In a similar vein, but not restricted to food, are the Naughty Little People images, here.
