Italy is home to some of the world’s finest cuisines, including pastries and desserts. This food artist gives us another reason to be impressed by Italians’ culinary prowess yet again, as he constructs intricate miniature scenes on desserts.
Matteo Stucchi is a pastry chef from Monza, Italy, who crafts desserts that depict life scenarios. His whimsical creations feature tiny human figurines who are seemingly going about their daily lives. He does this by playfully reimagining desserts as unique settings where his characters’ stories take place. This includes a tiramisu turned into a castle, a beignet envisioned as a planet, and a carousel made of tartlets, among many others.
Indeed, there’s no limit to this 26-year-old confectionery connoisseur’s imagination. Needless to say, his attention to detail is extremely impeccable. Building a scale model per se is already hard. But this food artist makes it even more challenging by using pastries as his materials. That said, it’s not any wonder why fans all over the globe are gushing over Stucchi’s masterpieces.
Stucchi’s Instagram account goes by the name of @idolcidigulliver, which means “Sweet Gulliver.” As you might have guessed, his works take inspiration from the satirical literary work, Gulliver’s Travels. Each week, the pastry professional unveils new creations on his Instagram page. Over 230,000 followers bear witness to his portfolio of edible art.
For the creative chef, a dessert’s aesthetics is equally important as its taste,
“In a dessert, decoration is as important as the taste.”
There’s no doubt that his desserts are delicious. However, their astonishing designs will surely make you think twice before laying a finger on them. These treats are just too pretty to eat!
