Brendan Jamison sculpts intricate buildings from hundreds of thousands of sugar cubes. Above is "Eastbourne Tower," built from more than 250,000 cubes. From BBC News:
Brendan's interest in architecture began in childhood. He was always a 3-D thinker, he said, and there was one toy he loved above all others.
"I was always in my room building Lego models," he said.
"I built spaceships and castles but I never bothered with the instructions… I just built whatever I could think of in my mind."
...He came to sugar after a brief dalliance with Smarties - and was attracted by how he could cut and carve the cubes.
"There was more freedom in working with them," he explained.
"I was attracted by the beautiful sparkles on the sugar cubes. It is a beautiful finish, you can see the fairytale sparkle in the natural light."
"Artist's Downing Street sculpture fashioned from 5,117 cubes"

Even after months of working from home, you’d be forgiven for thinking the whole experience still doesn’t quite feel…well, normal. In addition to all the obvious environmental changes of handling your 9 to 5 from your den or dining room table, the technological aids you didn’t realize you loved back at the office probably don’t […]
Running a small business drops a lot on to the plate of just one person. And between juggling a dozen tasks that need to get handled daily, it’s no surprise that there are a dozen more equally vital tasks that can just as easily go overlooked. While posting to social channels and making web posts […]
The importance of reading is well documented. About half of America’s unemployed between 16 and 21 years old are functionally illiterate. And there’s an almost direct line between how much you read and your earning potential, with the richest Americans three times more likely to read than those with a household income below $30,000.
