Forget having a hunky date: Fashion designer Rommy Kuperus has created the ultimate arm candy.

Take a look at her palate-pleasing purses all designed to look like colorful foods.

She was inspired to start making the adorable food-themed purses when she couldn’t find what she was looking for in stores.

“Everything was too basic for me and I’m always searching for the unique product which wasn’t there,” Kuperus of Rotterdam, Netherlands, wrote to ABC News. “So I started to make my own inspired accessories by food because food is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I always say it’s such a shame all that gorgeous food disappears in our stomach.”

If cake tickles your fancy, there are plenty of options for over-the-shoulder sweets that are just as cute as they are practical.

“My favorite one at this moment is the ‘Sprinkle Cake Purse,’” Kuperus said, although it takes the longest for her to make.

Her most popular product, however, is one for the more savory senses.

“The most popular one is the ‘Farfalle Pasta Bow Tie,’” she explained.

Kuperus doesn’t limit herself to purses. She also makes bow ties and jewelry.

“My designs are full of energy, a complete color explosion with sense of humor,” she wrote on her website. “I like to look at products in a different way, and go against the rules, because that will create that unique product!”

The creative styles will cost you anywhere from $20 to nearly $300.

Take a look at her awesome accessories that will whet your appetite.
