There is a popular notion that we eat with our eyes just as much as we eat with our mouths. And for most people, it’s true right? Well, here’s the newest 3-D printing technology experience which can food to a whole new level of sensory brilliance.
When it comes to the dessert planet, 3-D printing technology can be used to spin powdered sugar into complex creations that would be hard to otherwise produce. For example, you can create geometric boxes with forms floating inside a completely closed external structure. Wouldn’t it be so nice to look at that? With these 3-D printers, chefs can be able to produce ornate cake toppings, fancy cocktail garnishes, or intricate alternatives to a sugar cube for coffee.
It may seem a bit playful to 3-D print sugar art for your birthday cake or simple coffee. Yes, perhaps it is. But actually, that’s the very point.
The inspiration behind 3-D print food, most particularly for the culinary arts, is just for the fun and enjoyment it can bring. It feels really wonderful and amazing looking and there is this really long history in the culinary arts of food as a designed object and finding ways to make it appear more beautiful. And that’s part of the way we celebrate and present food to people. It ought to make them happy, much more if it tastes really good right? Let 3D printing sweeten your eating experience in ways you never imagined.
