The brainchild of Los Angeles architects Kyle and Liz von Hasseln, The Sugar Lab has adapted modern 3D printing technology to produce high-end edible objects for use on wedding cakes or table centerpieces. Recent graduates from the Southern California Institute of Architecture, the pair have developed a printing method that uses a mixture of sugar and alcohol that prints in layers. While the objects seen here are made using regular sugar, they hope to eventually create flavored mixtures that could be used for more complex pastry decorations, typographical treatments, or even functional objects that can later be eaten.
