After years as an accomplished architect, Peter Zaharatos satisfied his sweet tooth and opened Sugarcube, a dessert and coffee bar in Long Island City, Queens.

But these aren't your average pastries and sweets. Zaharatos designed many of them as he would a building, with a 3D printer bringing his concepts into reality.

Once the design is in place, Sugarcube's executive pastry chef Mauricio Santelice translates the architectural vision into delicious desserts.

Sugarcube is located at 10-16 50th Avenue in Long Island City.
