The ADAMASTOR

This cake was made for a competition in the Cake Alive 2013 Show. The competiton was organized by “Isto Faz-se” store.
This cake won the 3rd place in de modelling cathegory. :)

The Adamastor is a Greek-type mythological character famed by the Portuguese poet Luís de Camões in his epic poem Os Lusíadas (first printed in 1572), as a symbol of the forces of nature Portuguese navigators had to overcome during their discoveries. Camões gave his creation a history as one of the Giants of Greek mythology who had been spurned by Thetis, now appearing in the form of a threatening storm cloud to Vasco da Gama and threatening ruin to anyone hardy enough to pass the Cape and penetrate the Indian Ocean, which was Adamastor’s domain. Adamastor became the Spirit of the Cape, a hideous phantom of unearthly pallor.

Hope you like it.

Best Regards Cake lovers
