we love the food network challenge at our house.
last night, jack inspired a little food network challenge of our own. only, our cakes were made out of pop-up books. (have you looked at a pop-up book lately?!? they are veritable works of art!!)
jack was working with Star Wars: A Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxy (by Matthew Reinhart.)
i had The Chronicles of Narnia Pop-Up: Based on the Books by C.S. Lewis (Sabuda, Armstrong & Reinhart)
in each round, we had to choose a page as our "cake." after moving it to the table, we had to explain our inspiration, our sugar work, how we used our modeling chocolate... matty played keegan gerhard, and had the ominous job of judging our work. after seven rounds (whew!) we declared jack the winner, after he described how he used "glitter chocolate" to make C3PO.
we decided my style is very bronwyn weber, while jack is definitely duff goldman.
if you are a fan of beautiful pop-up books (the holidays are coming!), check out matthew reinhart's work here.
if you're a fan of the food network challenge, tune in at 7 pm eastern.
