You’ve heard of 3D printed clothes and 3D printed buildings, but 3D printed food? We are truly entering sci-fi territory. The Sugar Lab takes simple white sugar as its base material to print delicate 3D structures that can be eaten on their own, or used as a decorative topper for cakes and cupcakes.

The company, founded by married couple Kyle and Liz, started out when they wanted to make their friend a birthday cake but didn’t have an oven. They began to experiment with printing with sugar, until they finally discovered the secret formula to making complex geometric shapes from the sweet stuff. Suffice it to say, it was too late for their friend’s birthday but they found others interested in buying 3D sugar structures, and thus The Sugar Lab was born.  On their website they state:

3D printing represents a paradigm shift for confections, transforming sugar into a dimensional, structural medium. It makes it possible to design, digitally model and print an utterly original sugar sculpture on top of a cake.

The Sugar Lab creates custom design cake-toppers, and demonstrate the seemingly endless possibilities there are for this new technology. Click below to see some of their curious confections.
