In Japan it’s very popular ultra-realistic food made out of plastic, wax and other materials, and then painted. In the video below you can see a man who are making a very authentic-looking head of cabbage and uses only a hot wax and water.
It’s really amazing to see how the wax turns into a cabbage and how it looks real and authentic. The video is viewed more then 7 million times.
This kind of fake food was made in Japanese restaurants just to help people choose their order. This idea for food models in Japanese restaurants began in the 1920s.
This kind of fake food has been also created in China. Recently, a business publication in Philippines warned people to be careful with the cabbage they buy, because China can even fake it.
