    This is fun stuff. The goal seems to have been to print a cake, but this is how far they've gotten. Ok, it's mostly a glorified sugar cube at this point, but ti opens up some interesting opportunities in frosting and probably more.

    I love the look of it. This 3D printing is fascinating, very clever indeed

    This technology will make food presentation the most boring thing.

    When any ten year old kid can download a template or a file from ten million free files from the internet, and 3-D print out 100 identical very complicated cake design, or any food .

     I see that as more pushing and higher pricing for individual artistry. Yes, it will mainstream some of what is done now, but there is always room at the top.

    3D printing is the future - but printing sugar? What a heck...

    Its going to be a while before 3D printing is affordable, quick and available to normal people. Its expensive at the moment. This is really cool though! The things people come up with :D
