About my piece:
Sonia the Warrior: Initially intended as a project of self-reflection of the struggles and challenges of being a successful cake artist, Sonia the Warrior emerged as character fit to lead an army. From her confidence exuding face to her commanding posture, Sonia is the embodiment of a soldier ready for battle. She reminds us that even those from the humblest of beginnings are capable of being a champion and winning whatever battle we may encounter. Part mythical, part fantasy, part realism, Sonia captures the imagination with the layers of composition in the fabric of her design and the painstaking attention to detail from her feet to the crown made of the skulls of her enemies.
Sonia is 3 feet Tall and is completely Edible
