Wonderful works that today inspire me to create with imagination.

My piece is a wheel of fortune made in biscuit and decorated with Royal Icing, in which I have made the characters from the Ghibli movies that I love the most such as My Neighbour Totoro, Ponyo, Mononoke Hime, Spirited Away , The Secret World of Arriety, Grave of the Fireflies, the Castle in the Sky

This wonderful cake was made by Chrissy Askew from AsQ Cakes.

Artist’s description of this piece:

I am a huge fan of Hayao Miyazaki’s work! I jumped at the chance to be a part of this collaboration! With it being character based I wanted to incorporate many of my favorite characters and also pay tribute to their creator hence where the idea to have them all peering through Hayao’s glasses came from, almost watching themselves be created!

The artwork is made of royal icing cookies. The techniques used for this cookies display is royal icing 3d piping and painting. It took me 5 days to finish this from brainstorming the idea until finishing the display structure. Spirited Away is my most favourite Ghibli Movie. Making this artwork, I hope that Chihiro and Haku will have a happy ending and Chihiro will come back to this wonderful land, and the next movie episode will be made soon.

 

Spirited Away Cake

Spirited Away Cake

This wonderful sugar art was made by Guierine Donis from Spring Day.

Artist’s description of this piece:

My piece was made with fondant and wafer paper. I hope I was able to capture the essence of Kaonashi (No Face) .  SPIRIT AWAY it’s one of my favorite movies from studio Ghibli.
This movie is considered a Masterpiece for many reasons In many ways, Spirited Away symbolises Miyazaki’s hope for a secret world that still exists somewhere without being tarnished by modernity. Spirited Away’s legacy is also important because of the recognition it brought to anime after becoming the first anime feature to win the Oscar for Best Animated Film.
Spirited Away tells the story of Chihiro, a 10-year-old girl who navigates the labyrinths of life in a mystical microcosm inhabited by ancient spirits. Over the course of her journey in this alternate world, Chihiro learns valuable lessons about the fundamental nature of the universe as well as the importance of friendship. If you haven’t watch this movie please do, you won’t be disappointed.

 

This wonderful sugar art was made by Diney Hidalgo.

Artist’s description of this piece:

My piece is a vanilla cookie decorated 100% with piping royal icing annd it’s hand-painted. I chose Zeniba, Yubaba’s twin sister, for being powerful, kind and adopting Chihiro as her granddaughter And I love when Chihiro calls Yubaba Granny because that’s how she tells Zeniba.

Spirited Away Sugar Art

This wonderful sugar art was made by Kyoko Ueda from Sugar Voyager.

Artist’s description of this piece:

Inspired by the feasting scene of Kaonashi from Spirited Away.
I simply love this scene because the combination of a luxurious hot bath and feasting on foods is a pure and simple pleasure for most Japanese!!
Although the story emphasized people’s conscious or desire for wealth by making the ghost Kaonashi happy,, thus he would be throwing out magically conjured gold.
Kaonashi means “no face” in Japanese, actually what you see in only a mask, he is hiding his real face…. Very interesting character, it seems to reflect certain type of people in this world.

Artist’s description of this Catbus cake:
The Catbus, is a character in the Studio Ghibli film My Neighbor Totoro. It is a large grinning, twelve-legged cat with a hollow body that serves as a bus, complete with windows and seats covered with fur, and a large, bushy tail. Catbus is believed to be based on the Japanese bakeneko (“changed cat”), an ancient urban legend where cats that grow old learn to shape-shift.
Being that Im a huge cat lover, he is one of my all time favorite character from Ghibli Studios!!

Wonder Woman Chocolate Strawberries

Wonder Woman Chocolate Strawberries

Wonder Woman Chocolate Strawberries

These wonderful Wonder Woman Chocolate Strawberries were made by Sugar Fiend. There are a dozen strawberries in this set.

Six of them spell out Happy Birthday. These strawberries alternate between blue and red with two gold letters on each.

There are two with a lovely red swirl pattern on them and they have a gold Wonder Woman logo on them.

Two look like Wonder Woman’s costume. They have blue with white stars, a gold middle, and a red top.

The last two are close-ups of Wonder Woman’s head. She is wearing her gold tiara and in a really cute touch, her hair is black with blue accents. Why blue accents? For years comic books were printed with four ink colors. All the of the other colors were made by mixing these colors. It was extremely difficult to get multiple shades of black. So, if a character had black hair the easiest way to show texture or motion was to give it touches of blue. Modern comic books use better paper and the printing has improved so much that hundreds of shades can be used.

Planning a Wonder Woman themed party? Here are some of my favorite Wonder Woman posts.

This gorgeous cake features a comic book of Diana Prince transforming into Wonder Woman and then Wonder Woman diving out of the comic book.

This lovely Wonder Woman cake is made with two different sized square tiers.

This stunning 3-D sculpted cake features Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman.
