When something is very beautiful, or has a special and interesting design, people sometimes say that it “looks good enough to eat.” The phrase can be used to talk about actual food, but it is now often used to describe things that are not supposed to be eaten, such as people. For example, adults might see a little girl in a really cute princess costume and say, “You are so pretty in that outfit; you look good enough to eat!”

Valentyn Shtefano, a baker in the Ukraine, has taken this saying to a new level. This is a picture of Shtefano with his bride, Viktoriya. She is wearing a very special wedding dress, which he baked for her out of flour, sugar, eggs and caramel. The dress is made out of 1,500 cream puffs and took the baker about two months to complete. It looks good enough to eat -- and the best part is, you really could eat it! (Emily Shih, Staff Writer)

某樣東西很漂亮、或設計特殊有趣時,有時人們可以稱之為「looks good enough to eat」。這個片語可以用來講述真的食物,不過現在通常被用來描述像人這類不能吃的東西。例如,大人看到小女孩穿上可愛的公主裝時,可以說︰「你穿那件衣服好漂亮,秀色可餐!」

烏克蘭的麵包師傅瓦倫汀.席方諾賦予這個諺語新的意義。這張照片是他與自己的新娘子維多莉亞的照片。她穿著獨樹一幟的結婚禮服,是席方諾用麵粉、糖、雞蛋與焦糖所烤出來的。這件禮服是由一千五百個奶油泡芙製成,讓這位麵包師傅花了約兩個月才完成。它看起很美,讓人很想吃一口,最棒的是,你真的可以吃!
