© 2016 IEEE. 3D food printing is emerging as a high-resolution computer-aided-design and additive-manufacturing approach for producing food products. The benefits offered by 3D food printing include custom design and production of visually appealing foods, making of foods for people with special needs (e.g., people with swallowing difficulties), reduction in design and fabrication time and cost, and decrease in dependency on skilled personnel. This paper presents three-dimensional (3D) printing of a pavlova with chocolate garnish. Since the pavlova mixture mainly consists of eggwhite foam, its 3D printing is a challenging exercise. The materials and equipment used to 3D print the pavlova and the chocolate garnish are described. The preparation of meringue, design of pavlova, printing of pavlova, baking of pavlova, design of chocolate garnish, printing of chocolate garnish, and assembly of the pavlova are explained. The obtained results are presented and discussed, and the new opportunities that 3D food printing can offer are highlighted.
