An artist with a firm love of desserts has created a quirky collection of sculptures that re-imagines sweet treats as humans.

In her series, Camila Valdez - a 30-year-old artist from Buenos Aires - gives cupcakes and ice-creams female legs and places them in real-world situations, from a walk in the park to choosing shoes in a bedroom.

Valdez, who is known as "dessert girl" in Japan and China says her sculptures are inspired by the way everyday objects, in this case desserts, communicate to us through their colours, shapes and styles.

She explains, "If a cupcake is good looking eyecandy, it's says come and get me!"

The anthropomorphic creations look good enough to eat, but are made of fiberglass and hand-painted in vivid colours.

Each one is given a name from 'Miss Popcorn' to 'Missy Cupcake', and Valdez poses with them in photographs as if they are her regular friends.

Take a look at Valdez's whimsical collection below.
