Amazing Sugar Artist of Zhujiajiao, China!

In the little watertown of Zhujiajiao we were intrigued by a young man creating beautiful candy artwork of the symbols from the Chinese zodiac.

Using only a spoon and a slab of marble to cool the molten sugar, he made remarkable lollypops in just a few seconds. It seemed a shame to eat such fine work, but we justified it because they were too delicate to try to keep. Plus the carmelized sugar was much too tasty to ignore.
