Husband-and-wife architectural designers Kyle and Liz offer a3D sugar printing service, and create rather beautiful geometric shapes out of sugar.

The Sugar Lab started when we were graduate students. We wanted to make our friend Chelsea a birthday cake, but we didnt have an oven, so we decided to try to 3D print a cake instead. After a period of trial and error that lasted well beyond her actual birthday, we managed to print Chelsea a tiny cupcake topper that spelled her name in cursive sugar. She loved it! We thought other people might like 3D printed sugar, too, so when we graduated, we started The Sugar Lab officially, in our studio here in Silver Lake.

I was disappointed that Kyle and Liz didnt share any details of their printer. If youre looking for a more open (if far less active) sugar-printing project, be sure to check out EMSLsCandyFab. [viaHacked Gadgets]
