Microsoft’s collaboration with a candy shop gives a sweet shape to Xbox

According to Sticky Australia, Rock Candy isn’t the first choice to create sugar sculptures. But, they went ahead with using it because it is good for creating sugar rocks.

“First, we had to actually make the box. This wasn’t too difficult, but, it wasn’t too easy either. The details is where it got hard,” one member of the team narrated.

However, things got a bit tough when it came to giving life to the console and controller details, which was, “most of it was just perking holes into ventilated bits”. “We had to work really small to get the details… working small with rock, they don’t go together. It’s really hard, the bits are really brittle and hard to work with,” the member said.

Ultimately, the team prevailed! You can watch the Instagram Reel featuring the Xbox candy-making process here.
