Beyonce, Rihanna and Elvis: how one Instartist plays with her food

There's playing with your food (which obviously your mammy told you to never do), and then there's turning it into something great – a skill one New Yorker has definitely mastered.

Jessie Bearden is a 23-year-old Instagram artist who uses everyday seasonings, sauces and snacks to create incredible portraits of her favourite famous faces. 

What in particular recently caught our eye? A portrait of Caitlyn Jenner, 65, made using Wheaties – the same cereal for which the then Bruce Jenner did promotional work for in the aftermath of the 1976 Olympics.

Below, SHEmazing! takes a tour of the best that Jessie has to offer online. Make sure to look at her Instagram account too.
