The Unorthodox Chef posts on butter sculptures:

The Minnesota State Fair  showcases butter sculpture in the Princess Kay of the Milky Way contest. A 90 lb block of butter is taken and carved with their likenesses. It’s so bizarre really. I had the opportunity to see this several years ago with my sister. It’s funny that pageant finalists spend their whole lives avoiding fat, and at the fair their faces are full of it.
