Like maybe we’re Horton the Elephant, and there are little Whos living in these amazingly crafted worlds.

Non usciate di casa se non strettamente necessario; – coprite bocca e naso con fazzoletti monouso quando starnutite o tossite altrimenti usate la piega del gomito; – se avete sintomi simili all'influenza restate a casa, NON andate al pronto soccorso o presso gli studi medici ma contattate il medico di medicina generale, i pediatri di libera scelta, la guardia medica o i numeri regionali. SOLO INSIEME POSSIAMO USCIRNE! Io non mollo e voi? 💪🏻😊 IT'S THE TIME TO BE UNITED!

Do not leave the house unless absolutely necessary; – Cover your mouth and nose with disposable tissues when you sneeze or cough, otherwise use your elbow; -if you have flu-like symptoms stay at home, DO NOT go to the emergency room or doctor's office.

That, let’s be honest, are probably still delicious…

The creative mind behind the desserts is a 26-year-old pastry chef from Italy, Matteo Stucchi.

He believes that decorations are as important as taste, which is pretty obvious from his work.

His Instagram nickname is Gulliver, and his little creations remind everyone of the book Gulliver’s Travels – for good reason!

Every dessert is a little trip of whimsy, a stroll through worlds that are tiny but bursting with color.

I could look through these images forever, and I’m definitely going to follow him on Instagram.

This is filed under things I wish I could do but definitely can’t.
