The top 10 Most Amazing Things People do With Sugar

..


Well, we all know that we eat too much sugar in our diets, but most of us can’t quite give it up. However, most of these pictures below are sooooooo beautiful, it would be sacrilege to even lick your lips! Most of the links lead to amazing photo galleries, and a lot of the artists actually teach…so keep your beady eyes open in case they come to a town near you. It was really hard choosing just 10, but along the way I found out some incredible things – for example, when you watch your favourite hero/heroine diving through glass windows or having bottles smashed around them in films – it’s all made of sugar glass….who knew? But I am glad to know that it’s safer than it looks.

Most of us are still getting our heads round the concept of 3D printing, but the clever folk at the Sugar Lab have already taken it a step further – I have a serious case of gadget envy.

The art of blowing sugar goes back centuries in China, and street artists still practise today – they’re known as tang ren – sugar people. It’s truly amazing to watch.
