Hung for real? No photoshop? I like this project very much, when we’re starting printing food, and decoration is becoming more and more industrial and accessible. Thousands of cake designers are now sharing thousands of pictures where macarons or wedding cakes come out of fairy tales. Boring isn’t it? But here all the project is [...]

Anche io oggi ho deciso di riciclare qualcosa, ho deciso di riciclare i post del mio amico Michele perché il suo blog [...]
