3d Printed Sugar Sculptures
The Sugar Lab is a husband and wife team with an architectural background, based in Salt Lake USA. They apply the principles of 3d printing to confectionery, creating incredible, intricate structures from sugar - bespoke, to order. There's no confirmation on their website as to whether the constructions are edible, though there's no practical reason to believe that they wouldn't be - and they certainly look good enough to eat.
The potential for this sort of technology is hugely exciting. When you combine the ability to 3d print designs such as this with the existing creative approach to food, art and performance being taken by people such as Bompas & Parr and Miss Cakehead, the possibilities are almost endless.
