Baltazar Uscha cake

I made this cake for a competition in ExpoSweet Ecuador 2018, I won the first place šŸ„‡ with this one, it was a totally sculpted chocolate cake!, Baltazar Ushca, the last ice merchant of Ecuador. Twice a week for the last 55 years, Baltazar has trekked over 10 km in the early morning hours up to the fossilized glaciers on Chimborazoā€”to an altitude of 16,000 feet. There, he hacks away at glacial ice with a pickaxe and breaks it into blocks, which he wraps in hay and loads onto his donkeysā€™ backs. He then hauls the ice down the mountain to store in a hole in the ground. On Saturdays, he sells the ice at the market for $2.50 a piece, to vendors who turn it into ice cream and fruit juices.
