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.”
