Sugar Art Works With Chef Patrick Siau . . .

Sculpture1A

Recently I was invited to a dinner and demostration of sugar art works by Chef Patrick Siau. This event was held at Swiss-Garden Hotel Kuala Lumpur in collaboration with Taylor’s College. The method of sugar art works inclusive of melting sugar to the right temperature and proceed to the hardening hardening at the right temperature where the sugar can be molded by hand. Got to warn as this processes are done at a high temperature which can burn your hands, therefore woollen glooves are needed. Every piece of the sugar art is make individually and then assemble.
