Whether you’ve been infatuated with the sweetness of candy or have been fascinated by the beauty of intricately crafted works of art, Sugar Art is for you. Its perishable nature makes many of its creations delicate and ephemeral. Many sugar artists choose to create their works of art in an effort to give them a special quality that is enduring and beautiful. If you have any interest in sugar art, consider taking a course in a culinary school or purchasing a book about this form of art.

The history of sugar art can be traced to the 1500s, when French monarch Louis XIV commissioned confection artists to create sugar pyramids for his court. As sugar became more widely available, sugar art spread and evolved into other forms of symbolic confection art, including Japanese Wagashi, Mexican Day of the Dead figures, and specialty wedding cakes. Nowadays, sugar artistry has exploded in popularity, thanks to television shows and food networks. Here are some of the best examples.
