Crowfoot

Here’s one of my pieces from the Cork Cake Competition this past weekend. He is a lifesize edible bust of a man named Crowfoot from the Blackfoot tribe back in 1830-1890 in Canada. He was a key part in bringing peace between the Government of Canada and the First Nations at the time. Because of this he was awarded the Indian Treaty No 7 Medal, which he is wearing in my piece.

The blanket that he is wrapped in is a Hudson’s Bay Trading Company blanket (a shop still open today). Aboriginal people would trade furs for these blankets.

He is made from chocolate biscuit cake (a whole lot of it), a rice krispie head and covered only in Vera Miklas modelling chocolate. The beading is made from sprinkles/dragees and yes I stupidly placed each one individually. To give you an idea of how long that took – one side circle panel took me 3 hours. Lunatic, I know.

The feathers are made from wafer paper with a spaghetti stem covered in wafer paper coated in fabriliquid. The whole piece took me over 3 weeks to complete – but I’m super thrilled with him and my Gold and Best in Class awards that I won!! I hope you like him too! :)

Supplies: vera miklas modelling chocolate wafer paper sprinkles dragees

Tools: cerart modelling tools sugarshapers
