In just a few short months, Italian pastry chef Matteo Stucchi has taken the Instagram food community by storm, showcasing his incredible desserts in a far-from-orthodox way.
His posts, which now reach a following of more than 30,000 hungry users, are entirely based on shooting normal, life-sized treats in a miniature 'world'.
Stucchi has taken the approach of using tiny figurine workers to construct these "enormous" masterpieces. It's a unique concept that is ridiculously addictive to flick through.
