Entrepreneurs Apply 3D Printing Technology To The Creation Of Cake Toppers

June 4, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
An enterprising young British couple who lacked an oven for baking has nevertheless launched a baking business using a printer that creates edible 3D sugar statues that can be eaten on their own or used as cake and pastry decorations. The couple, former architectural students, applied a 3D printing technology used by architects to create physical models of buildings prior to construction. Their first creation was a tiny cupcake topper that spelled a friend's name. The couple, which has partnered with celebrity chef Duff Goldman to create a large wedding cake embellished with their confections, firmly believes that the technology has opened up “a whole new set of possibilities” for the baking industry.
