Candy Art by Candy Miyuki

Cultural, Entertainment

Ms. Miyuki Sugimori is a Japanese candy artist and is the only female professional who can skillfully shape candy material into flowers and animals by blowing air into it. Ms. Sugimori then finishes the candy by shaping it with her fingers and scissors and colors her creations with edible dye. She has been a favorite at past Greater Kansas City Japan Festivals.

She previously worked at Disney’s Epcot Center in Orlando, Florida at the Japanese Pavilion. Viewers of her video will enjoy her amazing skills.

Because we cannot have a physical festival, we are offering this virtual festival free to the community! Please consider placing a donation to the Greater Kansas City Japan Festival in place of admission this year.
