Yummy Edible Sculptures

Goldfish and octopuses that look like glass, tiny real looking pandas, shiba inu dogs, rabbits, dragons, and snakes… all edible. In the art of Amezaiku, artisans craft small candy lollipop sculptures.

During the Heian period, the art of amezaiku was imported from China and was probably first used in Japan for candy offerings made at temples in Kyoto.

The amezaiku craft spread beyond the temple during the Edo period, when many forms of street performance flourished in Japan and when its base ingredient, mizuame, became widely available. In Edo it emerged in its present artistic form.

Amezaiku artists also paint their sculpted candy with edible dyes to give the finished work more character.

Animals and insects are common amezaiku shapes created to appeal to children.

Intricate animal characters are created with expert speed. The realism is amazing!

Some amezaiku artists are also street performers who perform magic tricks and tell stories along with their candy craft entertainment.

An Explosion of Color

I found this collection of images on Facebook, and now I can’t remember where or who… They were made with some kind of photo app, which I also can’t remember.

LOL 😊

If I ever figure it out, I am going to make a bunch of them because I think this is super cool!

Super Cool Wooden Car

Check out this cool little car made of wood.
Pretty nifty!

Let’s take a look inside!

I love the way it looks inside!
Very plush!

But what’s under the hood?
Let’s take a look!

Hmmm…
Looks very clean and new!

What else does this cute little car have going for it?

Nice tires.
I wonder what it looks like underneath.

Again, looks very clean and new!

It’s a cute little two seater.
I wonder what’s in the trunk?

I love it!
