Following up on the mold made last month of a relief of a flamenco dancer, this mold was then used to make a chocolate figurine which was sprinkled with gold dust and presented to a young lady for her birthday, to joyous acclaim by said young lady and the rest of those at her table. Talk about creating good effects simply!

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here is another fondant cake, this one made to celebrate the birthday of a fan of the Chicago Cubs team.

The last time Mr. Gutman made a Chicago Cubs logo for a guest who was a fan was in 2016, when he carved it in a red apple; the procedure was published as a step-by-step article in the MBJ at that time. That year, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series for the first time in 108 years! On the day the birthday cake below was presented in 2020, the Cubs won that game—a good start! If they win the World Series this season, too, Mr. Gutman might find himself in high demand by all baseball teams next year, or the Cubs might even change their mascot to a butler figure! Either way, he is winning accolades from his guests for very simple or basic attention to detail and caring.

The mold of Mephistopheles that was featured in the July issue has been utilized to make a plain chocolate version and a chocolate version with gold and red cocoa-butters (pictured)—with some assistance in airbrushing from one of the chefs (a gold-medal winner of the Young Chef competition in the US) at Mr. Gutman’s hotel.

A cast was also made from resin & plaster, with a small magnet embedded at the back.

If these seem too complex to follow, then the following simpler fruit creations may encourage others to follow in Mr. Gutman’s footsteps:

 



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile, Mr. Gutman continues to work on improving his craft:

These horses are made with water-based clay so they would harden and he could paint them with a bronze look. Time to make so far: 10-12 hours.
