I Was Feeling A Bit Peckish,

so how about an octopus on a stick?


 perhaps a frog if you find the octopus a bit ticklish, 

 or the old favourite, a goldfish on a stick, 

strangely enough 27 year old self-taught candy sculptor Shinri Tezuka who we have featured before mentions in the video that fish are the most popular of his candy sculptures,

he is thought to be one of the youngest practitioners of amezaiku, a craft which he mentions in the video goes back to the 1600s there are only two known candy makers in all of Tokyo, Great Big Story recently stopped by Tezuka’s workshop for a quick video interview you can see above, absolutely fascinating, but what a shame to eat such a work of art!
