How a failed attempt to 3D print a cake led to beautiful sugar sculptures you can eat … or drop into your coffee
In grad school, designers Liz and Kyle von Hasseln wanted to bake their friend a cake. The only problem? They didn’t own an oven. They did, however, have a 3D printer.
In a talk at TEDxManhattanBeach, the duo explains how this problem led to a breakthrough: they couldn’t print a cake, but they could print a cake topper.
Now, Liz and Kyle now spend their days designing and (3D) printing edible sugar sculptures — from corkscrews for your coffee to latticework for your cocktail.
