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.

"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."
