Sarah Kaufmann, also known as The Cheese Lady, started carving cheese sculptures while working as the Creative Director for the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board. Her cheese sculptures were used in promotions for the Wisconsin dairy industry and her love of cheese art officially began.
Over the years, Sarah has carved an array of cheese sculptures. Among the most notable cheese creations are a 120-pound Mickey Mouse and six-foot long gator for the University of Florida.
Sarah’s cheese sculptures have appeared on numerous talk shows and food shows. She also regularly carves for food and wine festivals, state fairs and other events.
I think its interesting that we carve fruit and vegetables to look like flowers and other things, while in this photo, Sarah carves cheese to look like fruit. Cute!
