Ever have one of those fonts that you just have to get out of your system because it's there in your list, taunting you in until you finish it? This is one of those. Someone's likely done something like this before, but I just needed to see if I could do it. I did... and I even managed to keep my lunch down. As with most sugary sweet confections, this is best in small portions.

Frankly, I don't think something like this was done before, looks very original to me. And I like it very much. I like the chunky unusual esthetic, the light shining through it in big sizes

Charming display font using a tiny grid. Some innovative combinations of bricks, pretty curves, beautiful demo pick. (The font name sounds ominous. Is it a reminder to visit the dentist?) 10/10

I like the delicacy, the elegance, the revisitation of fairy tale universe in modern terms, the sensation that every letter is a little being of some magic Kingdom... For me your most beautiful work so far

neurone error and Frodo7: Thanks for the feedback! This really started as a throwaway that actually turned out halfway decent. The name (and the specimen) is simply a snarky response to its sugary-sweet, cavity-causing character. For some reason I just couldn't take it seriously. Kind of a guilty pleasure, I guess.
