Mashed Potato Sculptures

In honor of Thanksgiving, I present to you some of the past winning mashed potato sculptures from Potato Days, a full-blown celebration of the humble potato in Barnesville, Minnesota which is held in August. These were made by Monique Daley.

2000, 1st Place - Spaghetti, Meatballs and Beverage

2003, 2nd Place - Pizza and Pop

And amazingly realistic corn, with the texture created using a mesh bag/fabric
2004, 1st Place - Corn on the Cob

Hello, just checking out people's blogs in the holiday card swap :)

These potato sculptures are just my kind of kooky. Perhaps I'll have to make a trip out to Barnesville someday.

I know, right? But the corn on the cob is kind of amazing - who knew mashed potatoes could be so versatile?
