I created Jeremy as part of The Sugar Chronicles Beatrix Potter 150th birthday celebrations for The Cake & Bake show in Manchester.
This whole project has been such a fantastic experience. Working with such an amazing group is wonderfully motivating. Challenging myself to create something completely out of my comfort zone, using modelling chocolate to sculpt and define the shape before covering and finally completing the colour using edible dusts. The biggest challenge was finding a way to make his fishing line which was described in the book as ‘a thick white horsehair’, and yes I managed it, the fishing line is edible too.
I’m so proud of what we all achieved. You can see pictures of the final display on our page https://www.facebook.com/TheSugarChronicles/?fref=ts
