Do you want to surrounded by many pretty sweets everyday?: Sweets deco.
Cakes, macaroons, cookies, and chocolate…..Do you like sweets? Maybe many people will answer “yes”. So, do you want to be surrounded by such pretty sweets everyday? If your answer was “yes” again, you should pay attention this time much more than before!
Today, we’ll introduce you to “Sweets Deco.” This means “people decorate many things with pretty sweets.” Of course we don’t decorate with real sweets but the parts are made by resined clay and they look like real ones! The glue is silicone and this serves as whipped cream. Decoration artists make full use of those sweets parts, silicone whipped cream, and colored sauce to make wonderful sweets goods! They give many women a lot of dreams. Have you ever dreamed of living in the house made of sweets in “Hansel and Gretal” ? Although you can’t live in that house, you can spend happy days surrounded by many pretty sweets.
