Over the weekend, I was at a party which showcased a unique “edible art installation” by local dessert chef Janice Wong. I visited her cafe, 2am Dessert Bar, many years back. Today, Janice Wong is an established pastry chef well-known for her creative and innovative desserts.

Holy moly! You can eat this – just swipe your finger to enjoy the marshmallow on the wall.

This side is curry and green mango, with meringue.

The yellow side is passionfruit flavoured.

I was reminded of my child-like fantasy of being in a candy house, tasting the roof that was made of meringue.. clearly I read a lot of Enid Blyton’s growing up. This was exactly the experience that I enjoyed, touching and tasting an art piece. Very visually impactful and exciting.

As Janice Wong the chef said in an interview here, “Edible art concepts are always an experiment, proper calculations must be made with weight and structure.” As such, this is truly no mean feat and require a lot of planning – 2 months, according to her- before the installation could be up (within a day) and appreciated by many.

If any of you is planning a corporate party, you could consider this dessert idea, which I’m sure would be a conversation topic and crowd pleaser.
