Innovative Japanese designer Tomonori Siato takes a unique spin on rock gardens by offering this edible treat version of the calming zen space. This rock garden is made from entirely edible materials that are sure to make you feel calmer as well as fill your mouth up with delicious flavors.

Siato's edible rock garden aesthetically looks remarkably similar to the real thing. This candied rock garden comes in a minimalistic white box filled with a grainy, white, sand-like material and several faux stones. The sand is in fact made from white sugar and the rocks are made from Asian foods like black sesame. Users can enjoy using the tiny wooden rake to sculpt the sugar sand around the edible rocks.
