Anui - Indigenous People Of Japan

This Anui gentleman was my entry in the Japan - An International Cake Collaboration, hosted by the wonderful Raquel Garcia. He is 14 inches tall, made of modeling chocolate with clothes of fondant and headpiece of fondant and wafer paper. The whole thing is painted with a combination of dry brush and petal dusts mixed with vodka.

I'm copying and pasting from the other site... I'm still convinced the whole thing smells a rat!

"Sandra… you must be kidding, I’m pretty sure that is Mike with a thin layer of “petal dust and vodka (yesss!)” Ma’am another amazing creation of yours! Awesooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooome!"

Thanks so much, June!

You are so funny, Anna!  I guess if his hair was more white, it could be Mike.  Thank you for your sweet words!

A real work of art. So amazing that it's done in sugar! I am impressed by the painting on the shirt, the design of the vest, and the shape and texture of the hair, all look so real! But the pained look on his face is beyond real, it's so alive. Great job, Sandra!

Thank you for such kind words, rdevon!  I can't take credit for his clothes, I copied them from a photo of the gentleman.  He was so handsome and I didn't do him justice.
