Science and Art of Sugar Sculptures *In-Person*

Watch a sugar piece come to life as you learn the basic science of isomalt, a sugar derived from sugar beets, and why this compound disaccharide is a more durable and glossier option for sculptures than sucrose. Students will also learn casting, pulling, and blowtorching techniques and various coloring options, including the use of edible markers. You’ll leave with your very own sugar sculpture.
