Agree that the confectioner is not only a technologist but also an artist and a sculptor. This is especially true for masters who can build a sugar lock or figure of a knight on a horse.
In the 15th century sugar was produced from sugar, lollipops, figurines. Italians at that time began to develop confectionery art. Jam, ice cream, sugar architecture – it all starts in Italy. To the Italians, Europe consumed exclusively sweets brought by the Arabs. It is the Arabs who are obliged to open the cooking of sugar for new desserts. Confectionery products in Europe, in particular, confitures, become fashionable food, corresponding to a high status in society.
