Jabba the Hutt

Another “Star Wars challenge”, this was one of my most fun recent assignments; how exactly¬†does one make something look slimy and appetising at the same time?!?

I built up his general form with layers of victoria sponge and buttercream, carved it to shape, then added skin and features in various shades of green, yellow and beige fondant.

A lick of sugar syrup to give him a slug-like sheen and Jabba was ready for his approving audience.
