17-Year-Old Whips Up Adorable 3D Latte Art That Pops Out of Her Mug

Daphne Tan 3D Latte Art

Daphne Tan (aka periperipeng) takes coffee art to the next level. The 17-year-old is quickly making a name for herself by whipping up 3D coffee foam characters that pop out of the mug.

With the use of a Nespresso milk frother, the self-taught, Singapore-based latte artist uses a mix of carob powder, soy milk, and water to create the thick foam for her sculpted masterpieces. For the details, she uses natural food coloring and melted chocolate. Tan’s caffeinated creations aren’t express espressos, though—each one can take up to 20 minutes to construct. But the final results are worth it, and almost too cute to drink!

Tan’s soy-based sculptures range from fluffy puppies to friendly octopi, and even recognizable characters, such as Pikachu, Nemo, and Snoopy. Her work has recently gained the attention the Singapore Coffee Festival, which invited her to demonstrate her talent at its August 2017 event.

If you fancy yourself as a 3D latte artist, you can find a handy how-to photo guide on Tan’s website.
