If you were scolded at least once by your momma for playing with food, don't feel bad anymore because playing with food certainly pays off. This 26-year-old pastry chef from Italy, Matteo Stucchi, always believed that in a dessert, the decoration is as important as the taste. Following his Instagram nickname, his little creations remind the world of the famous book 'Gulliver's Travels'. Just as Gulliver encountered the tiny Lilliputians, Stucchi's tiny worlds are also filled with miniature figurines, all arranged to create these fascinating mini-scenes. Scroll down to discover them!

It usually takes 2 to 4 hours to create the beauty you see in Stucchi's photos. Sometimes he draws inspiration from the sweets themselves, and sometimes he says he is "inspired by their particular shape or from images seen on social networks, other times it is my little characters who give me the idea based on their position".

The most rewarding part for the pastry chef is "to see the end result of my work although I must say that tasting while preparing, I do not mind". He offered some kind advice for novice sweet-tooths out there. "Never surrender," he said. "It happens sometimes that things don’t go well at the first attempt, then you just have to roll up your sleeves and start over again without giving up and sooner or later, you succeed."

Is the steam/smoke a modified marshmallow or a strung-out cotton ball?
