"The Golden Hind" - Sugar Myths & Fantasies 2.0
Here is my first contribution towards the world collaboration called Sugar Myths and Fantasies 2.0 which was awarded the Best Collab Cake Oscar last year in its first installment.It means a lot to me in being able to share such a grand platform with immensely talented artists.Please take a look at all the incredible pieces created by over 121 sugar artists from around the world.
Golden reindeer have always been a subject of curiosity for me and my inspiration to create this Golden Hind. I have predominantly used gum paste, fondant, and Royal icing to put together this piece. Modelling the head of the hind was the challenging part for me and I chose to sculpt it in Royal Icing. The whole set up has been hand painted to bring in the feel of a full moon night from the forest depicting Cerynitis standing gracefully in a lake lighting up the forest with its golden radiance. Photographing my piece was a bit tricky and I decided on showcasing the effects of playing with light as well.I hope you all enjoy watching this creation.
