Butter Me Up Crazy Crafted Butter Sculpture

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.

Butter sculpture also made it’s way to Canada, with the Ontario Cream Producers Marketing Board and the Dairy Producers of Canada campaigning to promote their products after World War II. Butter sculptures were displayed at both the Canadian National Exhibition and Royal Agricultural Winter Fairs in Toronto. Ross Butler (artist) was the first Canadian artist to sculpt in butter at these fairs.
