Amazing Sugar Art by Michelle Wibowo
Just before I was about to publish this post, food artist and chef Modie Moore who attended and competed in the 2012 Culinary Olympics sent me some of his photos that show the close up details of Michelle’s prize winning cakes.
When I first received Modie’s email with these photos, the photo below of the hands in the first image I opened to look at. My first thought was, “Why is Modie sending me photos of someone’s hands?” Then I realized that these are not real hands but the hand of Michelle’s Queen Elizabeth sugar sculpture! Amazing!
I am in awe! Michelle is so talented and skilled. She totally deserves to have won first and second place. (In all fairness to the other contestants, I was not there to see the competition but I don’t think I’ve ever seen such realistic sculpting with cake and icing).
