Samurai Fruit Tower

>>  5/18/2014

I have a customer Tatiana. Her children love japanese anime very much. Last year I did Totoro fruit display for her daughter. This year she asked for something cool for her son.

When we discussed what the fruit display could be, Tatiana showed me a photo of a Samurai cake. That cake was created by Buddy Valastro,  a star of Cake Boss TV show on TLC. Tania's son got crazy about the Samurai when he saw it on tv. So we thought that he would be happy to get a Samurai fruit tower for his birthday. 

My Samurai has a watermelon head and a pumpkin helmet.
The tower size is 45x45x70 cm.

Fruit Carving Show

>>  5/13/2014

When Tom Cruise and Olga Kurilenko broke an ice sculpture at a Taiwanese premiere of Oblivion, and the Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs did a Watermelophant Contest, I got that carving art could be turned into an entertaining show. I've had a dream to do a fruit carving perfomance one day. I took down a plan of my possible show including jokes, funny stories and sketchs of garnishes which could be intersting to visitors. I was prepared to meet my chance :)

The opportunity came to me in the begining of May, when I did a Fruit Carving Show at a movie preview "Kitchen In Paris", a comedial story about a russian cafe in Paris. 

It was a 30 minutes fruit carving perfomance in the cinema theater before the movie. After a short presentation I involved people in to the art of drink garnishing. 

I had some cretaria for my show:
  • beign kids friendly with family content
  • using easy techniques with a simple knife
  • show fruit garnishes that people do not expect to see
  • connection with the movie theme

Instead of 30 minutes I had 1 hour show. When the movie started I still had people at my desk. 

See the following pictures of the show.
