A Taste of 3-D
A startup that prints three-dimensional food
Sugar art, a tedious culinary craft requiring great manual dexterity and rigorous practice, is starting to go digital.
Pastry chefs who sculpt hot strands of sugar into birds’ nests might be swapping out their bowls and burners for 3D printers sooner rather than later.
3D sugar printing has not only arrived, but it’s accessible to anyone.
Kyle and Liz von Hasseln are the brains behind the geometric sugar creations that serve as everything from cake toppers to centerpieces to intricately designed sugar cubes. In 2013, the husband-and-wife team started a 3D sugar printing business out of their home in Los Angeles called The Sugar Lab.
