Chihuly Collaborative Submission 2016

While this isn’t a cake, it is free standing sugar art and may be displayed on a cake!
I’ve created my art display of isomalt which comes in transparent colors and opaque colors from the factory. Here I have blended colors to create an alabaster effect much like the alabaster or opalino glass that is stock in trade of the glass working industry and particularly of the Morano glasses of Italy. This alabaster effect has been created by combining isomalt colors and gently combing them in places to create a variegated glass appearance in the bowl of the setting. More mixing of this combination of sugars created a more pronounced opaline suspension and blended to create the fantasy fruits of blown sugar orbs with trailing stems and leaves. One pressed disc of isomalt was added to the bowl with the larger fruit piece to add a tiny touch of geometric presence into an otherwise random and free flowing theme. Something for the intellect to play with. The isomalt I used was about 50/50 from Cake Play and Simi Isomalt. Thank you Sidney for contributing isomalt for my project! Thank you to Heba and Vincent for this collaboration I really enjoyed it and it was a skill expanding experience! Happy Birthday Mr. Chihuly!

Eat More Cake!!
