Pastry chef creates cookie replicas of Oscars dresses

Ahead of this year's Oscars, a famous pastry chef from New York has created cookie replicas of famous actresses and their iconic Academy Awards gowns. Jansen Chan, a director of pastry operations at the International Culinary Center, used sugar paste and cookie dough to create the cute duplicates.

Angelina Jolie's famous black Atelier Versace dress with the thigh-high split has been recreated, as well as Lupita Nyong'o's pale blue custom Prada gown.

The designs even feature the actresses' poses, signature hairstyles and jewellery.

Each cookie took Jansen a staggering eight hours to design and make. He also created an edible catwalk featuring a red velvet cake runway complete with cookie audience and paparazzi.

In a video shared by the International Culinary Center, the chef's creations can be seen strutting the runway and stopping to pose.

"To celebrate the fashion frenzy of the awards season, #ICCedu pastry chef-instructors recreated some of the most iconic dresses to ever grace the red carpet," they wrote on their Instagram page.

"Made of sugar paste and sweet cookie dough, each model took eight hours to construct — less time than most actresses take to get ready for an awards show. The edible stage design features a red-velvet carpet runway, surrounded by adoring cookie fans and paparazzi."
