I had the awesome opportunity to take a class from Lauren Kitchens . Lauren ownes Fancy Cake by Lauren in Dallas, TX. Lauren is famous for muppetizing the judges on the Food Network's Cake Challenge. For this class we got learn all about muppetizing people. Our first challenge was to choose someone we knew to use as our inspiration and then go about replicating their likness into a muppet.
I chose my daughter, Anna.
For this class, we worked on styrofoam dummies, The body, head and 'splat' on the cake were all accomplished using modeling chocolate. I had never used modeling chocolate before and I think I have found my new favorite medium. It is so awesome! I'm so glad I got the opportunity to take this class and look forward to making many more muppets in the future!
The finished product...and side-by-side comparison.
A class full of muppets.
