Cadbury Chocolate Carnival Goes Geek
Xoanon @ 1:06 pm EST
I live in Dunedin, New Zealand since last year Dunedin has held 'The Cadbury Chocolate Carnival" which involves the 'Worlds steepest jaffa race', which is thousands of jaffas (Candy covered chocolate balls, for those that don't know) rolling down Baldwin St (the steepest street in the world), quite fun to watch.
Anyways as apart of this carnival they have a Chocolate Art Exhibition, where you can sculpt it, photograph it, or just about do anything with it as long as it had something to do with Cadburys chocolate.
So what does this have to do with Lord of the Rings you may ask?
Well I was so bored in the Holidays I decided to enter it. I made a Lord of the Rings sculpture. I made the OneRing out of White chocolate, ingraved with the inscrpitions and all, (took me a while to figure out how to make it) I then made a chocolate stand for it, kinda looks like a tree stump. I then made quite a few chocolate leaves, by painting real ones and peeling the chocolate off once it had gone hard and stuck them around the stand.
I didn't quite win the competition but I did get second place which was $200 and lots of chocolate
You will never beleive who beat me!! Harry Potter!!, It was quite good, but I'm sure that the seven year old had some help by her mother to make it. Nevermind it was fun and i got $200 for doing something I enjoyed making.
See ya later Ring lovers!
