Sweet invention

While I write about 3D printing and marvel at some of the things I can do, I haven't really personally been interested in having one until now. This 3D printer totally changes the game, especially for foodies and people with a sweet tooth. It's probably the only 3D printer I would like to have. I think this is also a good invention for pastry chefs that need to churn out confections and sweets quickly, although I am sure purists will want to keep it real by making things by hand.

Nice project. I went through the early reviews of the project and thought that it's mainly focusing on cakes and cookies decorations, but then i saw the chocolate vases being made by the same machine and i was amazed. Truly, a great step forward in making the eatables look more beautiful and saving time and labor cost in the process.

It looks interesting for small scale mass production.

Personally, I like the old fashioned method.  Watching a confectioner at work is mesmerizing.  It's a great skill that shouldn't be lost.

@NadineJ: Well very true. Those traditions cannot be matched at any point. True it consumes more time but quality wise it's the best
