Stunning Sugar Sculpture Produced by 3D Printing Technology
Since invented, 3D printing technology has been widely used in various area and ‘The Sugar Lab’ just show us another usage of it – producing high-end edible objects for use on wedding cakes or table centerpieces. These beautiful sugar sculptures displayed below were made by Los Angeles architects Kyle and Liz von Hasseln, using a process similar to standard 3D printing: a mixture of alcohol and water is applied selectively in layers to wet and then harden the sugar. The resulting pieces taste like normal sugar, but way pretty. The designers said: “We see 3D-printed sugar as the best place to start, in terms of 3D printing food. It’s primed to embrace technology like 3D printing as a design tool, and we’re just tapping into that.”
