Food doesn’t have to be beautifully plated in order to taste delicious, but it certainly helps when food looks appetizing.

Some chefs take plating to the extreme and do more than a simple chocolate drizzle on a dessert plate. Instead, they turn the whole experience into a work of art.

Pastry chef Matteo Stucchi lives in Monza, Italy. In 2016, he posted a photo of one of his amazing creations on Instagram for the very first time. The photos that have followed have only gotten more and more impressive.

What’s especially unique about Stucchi’s desserts is that he adds non-edible figurines to turn the dessert into a whole world. In many cases, the figurines are construction workers who appear to be assembling the desserts.

The desserts are very imaginative, and they all look especially delicious. Scroll down to see some of our favorites.

    Chi ha detto che non si può preparare il gelato al pistacchio senza gelatiera, bastano due semplici ingrediente #illattecondensato per dargli un sapore unico e una ruspa spallinatrice per porzionarlo ahahah.😂🍦 Who said that you can not prepare pistachio ice cream without ice cream machine, just two simple ingredient #illattecondensato to give it a unique flavor and a shovel loader to service it. 🍦🤩 #gelato #crostata #cake #cioccolato #chocolate #icecream #estate #natura #nature #passion #happiness #world #fantasia #biscotti #art #workinprogress #pistachio #photography #sweet #cheesecake #tiramisu #colazione #adventure #fantasy #summer #passione #love #amore #pistacchio
