I don't know about you, but there's a very soft spot in my largest muscle for Chinese Desserts.

Something about the textures, colours and utter sweetness that really speaks to me.

So here's my ode to 糖水 in general with a few of my favourites and some I haven't even tried:

Light Set

馬蹄露 - Water Chestnut Soup with Egg

芋圓 - Mixed Taro Ball

Dark Set

涼粉 - Herbal Jelly

芝麻合桃露 - Almond and Sesame Soup

This celebration of sugar shares the spotlight with one of my all time favourite materials, cellulose acetate. What a gorgeous invention it is. Non-toxic, totally old school and with a colour depth and translucency that out of this world.

So I hope you enjoy these hand made chopsticks as much as I enjoyed making them come to life.

The product nobody asked for, but everyone will fall in love with!

And yes, none of these desserts are eaten with chopsticks. (Except maybe a taro ball...)
