Was watching the foodtv network today and happened to catch the 2002 World Pastry Championship. Looking at the GORGEOUS showpieces I had to wonder, can anyone here make something even remotely like these? Images of Showpieces
Background: Among other things like making petit-fours and cakes to be tasted, each team has to create 2 showpieces - 1 entirely made of chocolate and the other entirely made of sugar. In 2002, Japan won for their sugar showpiece and Belgium won for the chocolate (and poor Team Canada's sugar showpiece broke while it was being moved).
So, could any of you make something like these?
