When I was at the San Francisco Saturday farmers market last, the Sweets Collection booth drew me like a magnet. Not only are their creations gorgeous but edible, too! Somehow they craft beautiful desserts that look like iced and decorated cakes and glass paperweights filled with realistic 3-D multicolored flowers out of milk-based and water-based gelatin. They even use various glass stemware to provide different looks. The gel confections were so stunning, I was afraid to ask for a morsel to try but I did, and it tasted delicious.
