For tha Love of Sweets

I don't have a sweet tooth but I do enjoy the craftsmanship and visual appealing of sweets, while I spend hours and sometimes days without moving from my computer I took a break by making my own sweets fantasy, while this started as a project to practice my 3D rendering skills, It quickly grow into a buffet of creativity and imagination.

Glazing Doughnuts

Whisk together 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/4 cup milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla until smooth.
When the doughnuts are cool enough to handle, dip into the glaze; if you like, flip them so the tops they're completely covered.
Put on racks to let the glaze harden.

Honey in the Jar

A honey dipper is a turned kitchen utensil that is used to collect viscous liquid (generally honey) from a jar or container, which it then exudes to another location. Besides the handle, the tool consists of equally-spaced concentric (coaxial) grooves. One method of using the tool is to dip the grooved spiral end into the liquid, then slowly twirl the handle between the thumb and fingers while in transport, to prevent dripping. It is commonly used to drizzle honey on bread, biscuits, or other foods of that nature.

“Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.”
-A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
