Candy Sculptures.

edible-1Ever had a hankering to taste a slippery goldfish or a wriggling tadpole?
Now you’re in luck thanks to a new candy shop in Tokyo called Ameshin that offers traditional Japanese amezaiku, a form of artisinal candy making that dates back to the 8th century when the edible objects were offered at temples or given as gifts.
edible-2The lollipops and other confectionary beasts are made by the shop’s owner, 26-year-old Shinri Tezuka, from a mixture of starch and sugary syrup (somewhat like taffy) that results in a translucent, almost glasslike candy.
Tezuka shares more of his latest creations on the Ameshin website and Facebook page. (via Spoon & Tamago)
