Sure, you've seen the royal couple's formal engagement pictures. But have you seen them rendered in turkey, cauliflower and roast beef? English artist Prudence Staite used the ingredients of a traditional Sunday supper to create an edible portrait of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The tribute (it really is meant to be a tribute) took hours to create, and features a chopped carrot dress for Kate and a shirt made of peas, cauliflower and green beans for William. Her now-famous ring? Gravy.
What possible explaination could there be for this bizarre food portrait? Publicity, of course. The portrait was commissioned by a U.K. restaurant chain that focuses on roasted meats. Martin Gosling, retail operations director for Crown Carveries, said they "wanted to give the happy couple a tasteful memento of their special day."
Tasty, maybe. But definitely not tasteful.
