A Bromley confectioner is offering customers the opportunity to print their selfies in 3D - using SWEETS.

The Willy Wonka-esque technology produces a completely edible picture treat in five minutes, and will be the first time the printer has been seen in the UK.

The printer, from award-winning tech start-up Katjes Magic Candy Factory, will be producing the treats at Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe in Bromley High Street from February 25.

It will launch with a grand opening which will include magicians and an appearance from EastEnders actor Richard Blackwood.

The sweets will be available in eight vegan flavours including strawberry, lemon, apple, mango and elderberry.

With the 3D printing technology, customers will be able to make any sweet they want from a greeting card to a self-drawn design.

The Katjes Magic Candy Factory is world-renowned for its personalised sweets since it launched in 2015.

Melissa Snover, founder of the company, said the demand for customised sweets have been growing and “can’t wait to see what people think” after a successful trip to an international sweet trade fair last month.

She said: “Innovation is our life blood here and bringing new and exciting levels of customisation for our customers is our mission.

“We thrive on customers' feedback and are 100 per cent motivated to create products which delight people and bring magic to their lives.

“To think of how far we have come in such a short period of time is remarkable.

“The idea that anyone from any country or culture is now able to experience the joy of creation using cutting-edge technology to produce something totally unique in a matter of moments makes me very proud.”
