Sugar Art

The amount of creativity that floats around in a baking and pastry kitchen always amazes me.For the final project in Chocolate and Sugar Showpieces lab was to make a sugar showpiece of your choice.Everyone had a different theme that not only was beautiful but also showed a little about themselves.

Here are the pictures of my classmates projects.

A Chandelier inspired piece

A sun-rise.

The hula dancer.

A delicate peacock.

An amazing hamburger, fries, and coke.Sadly, this picture does not do it justice.

The very cute elephant and a few peanuts.

For my showpiece I decided to make an beach scene with coral and a crab.I wanted to try my hand at blowing sugar so I decided to make the crab using that technique.I definitely underestimated just how difficult it would be to make a crab.I only broke 6 crab bodies before getting to the final one.

The only whole crab that made it out of the hot-box.

The rest of the showpiece went relatively easily.I made a large wave as the backdrop and used ice to make coral.Once I put everything together it looked great!

A close-up of the final showpiece.

I am content with my work, although I know that next time I can do a better job.I enjoy working with sugar but it is frustrating because of how delicate it is.I think I will stick to working with cake and chocolate!
