Did you know many restaurants use fake desserts for display purposes - and that those fake desserts cost hundreds of dollars! 

If you you were ever considering making money on commissioned 3D pen art, fake food is a great idea! There are Mynters who already sell their 3D pen creations. 

How cool is that?!
