Man creates monumental cheese carving
 



Completing a commission from Cheez-It brand crakers, Troy Landwehr puts the finishing touches on a sculpture of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, carved from a block of cheddar cheese weighing more than 600 pounds, Friday, June 29, 2007, in Little Chute, Wis.

LITTLE CHUTE, Wis. - A cheese carver has accomplished a task that's a real "Muenster" or make that a "monster" in size. Troy Landwehr used his carving tools to turn a 700-pound block of Land O' Lakes cheddar into a replica of Mount Rushmore.


 
The cheese carver and winemaker was commissioned by Cheez-It snack crackers to make the monumental carving.

He's heading to New York City in coming days to appear on TV and promote the work on Times Square.

Then the carving hits the road on a publicity tour, while Landwehr heads home to Little Chute.

The carving eventually will end up in Oklahoma and be cut into cubes to become a snack itself.

Landwehr said that doesn't bother him.

"In the end, they'll love eating good Wisconsin cheddar down south," he said.
