Jules Verne's Bust, for a french collaboration
On April 20th, 14 Cake Artists presented at Sugar/Expogato Cake Design fair in Paris a collaboration they – almost – kept secret for months: “Jules Verne’s Ephemeral Museum”
The team includes the finest Cake Artists from France and Switzerland:
3 Cake Masters Magazine TOP 10 ARTISTS FRANCE 2018;
1 ARTIST OF THE MONTH APRIL 2018 Global Sugar Artists Network;
4 Cake Masters Magazine TOP 10 ARTISTS FRANCE 2017;
2 New York TOP 10 ARTISTS INTERNATIONAL 2017;
3 Cake Design CEZ’ARTS 2017;
3 Judges in National Cake Design Competitions;
1 DISCIPLE ESCOFFIER;
1 Cake Design and Modelling book author;
Countless Awards in France, Spain, the UK and USA.
Each Cake Artist had to choose a novel in Jules Verne’s Bibliography and make an original and personal sugarcraft to represent it. Very important : only one artist per novel as the aim was not only at recreating Jules Verne’s most well-known books such as “Journey to the Center of the Earth”, “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” or “Around the World in Eighty Days” but also at (re)discovering less famous literature such as “Master Zacharius”, “The Carpathian Castle” or “Adventures of the Rat Family".
The team coordinated everything through a private Facebook group to get the collaboration all the way to Paris and expose in the Sugar / Expogato cake design fair. The exposition received a wonderful feedback from the visitors and everybody agreed the fair’s most beautiful and intricate sugarcrafts could be found in “"Jules Verne’s Ephemeral Museum": https://www.facebook.com/le.musee.ephemere.de.jules.verne/”.
