3D-printed sugar sculptures are sweet to look at (and eat!)

The Sugar Lab

3D printing has the power to make some really detailed stuff. We know this, but there's one project that really proves just how intricate 3D-printed objects can be.

The Sugar Lab creates custom designs for folk out of, well, sugar. Kyle and Liz, the pair behind the lab, decided to work with sugar partly for the challenge, and partly to help a friend find a stunning cake topper for her birthday. The two now print of all kinds of incredible shapes to really excite geometry fans.

See the Sugar Lab's full gallery over on its website.
