A Pastry Chef Turns Food Into Miniature Worlds

You know how it was when you were little – no playing with food was allowed. But that’s exactly what Matteo Stucchi’s career is all about. He’s a pastry chef with an amazing talent for creating miniature worlds on his cakes and other confectionery.

Stucchi is 26-years-old and he lives in Italy. He named his Instagram account idolcidigulliver, a name taken from the children’s book Gulliver’s Travels. In the book, the main character Gulliver travels to the land of tiny Lilliputians and Stucchi’s miniature worlds definitely remind us of the story.

“I wanted to present my desserts differently from others,” Stucchi told The Local. “There are lots of artists who create miniatures using food, but I focus on desserts. I try to use my imagination as much as possible in order to surprise people.”

La festa della mamma si avvicina e anche qui a Lilliput stiamo dando gli ultimi ritocchi per festeggiare una delle persone più importanti della nostra vita e dirle un grosso ed enorme: GRAZIE!. 😊 Grazie per tutto ciò che fanno ogni giorno per noi; Grazie per la sopportazione che hanno anche quando combiniamo guai; Grazie per le risate e i bei momenti passati insieme; Grazie per tutto l'amore incondizionato che ci mostrano in ogni istante; Grazie per essere ciò che sono: uniche!; Grazie per sostenerci e motivarci ad andare avanti quando tutto va nel verso sbagliato; E infine  Grazie per proteggerci sempre, anche se magari sono diventate degli angeli non smetteranno mai di farlo.❤ Mother's Day is coming and here in Lilliput we are giving the finishing touches to celebrate one of the most important people of our life and tell her a big and huge: Thank you!. Thank you for everything they do every day for us;Thank you for the endurance they have even when we combine troubles;Thanks for the laughter and the good times spent together; Thank you for all the unconditional love that show us in every moment; Thank you for being who I am: unique!; Thank you for supporting us and motivating us to move forward when everything goes wrong; And finally thanks for protecting us always, even if they have become angels will never stop doing it.❤ #mom #cioccolato #chocolate  #mommy #crostata #diyfoodys #mamma #fotografi_amo #crostata #happiness #biscuits #ganache #biscotti #musica #dolciitaliani #dessert #fragole #sweet #cheesecake #tiramisu #strawberry #colazione #love #golosità #cream #cupcakeproject  #food_instalove #amore #crema #cottoepostato
