Pastry Chef Creates Incredibly Detailed Culinary Microworlds

November 8, 2016

Italian pastry chef Matteo Stucchi crafts imaginative desserts using his skill and a few tiny figurines.

His Instagram account, called “i Dolce di Gulliver” (or “Sweet Gulliver” when roughly translated), brings to mind the namesake’s Gulliver’s Travels. Just as Gulliver encountered the tiny Lilliputians, you encounter Stucchi’s small figures telling a story with sweets.

Look at this deliciously spooky optometry lesson:

There’s even a tiny supervisor for this lemon pastry to make sure the job gets done:

Always look out for heavy machinery near dessert:

These figurines decided to tackle crevices of this massive muffin:

We’d love to see a cake pop Ferris Wheel! It might even be safer than some alternatives…:
