The theme of this candy showpiece is Peacock. It is made by Andreas Schwarzer who is the pastry arts instructor at School of Hospitality and Tourism at SAIT Polytechnic in Calgary. The flowers that show in the picture are made with pastillage. Pastillage is a kind of sugar paste that looks similar to gum paste. The other things are made by pulling and casting sugar. It is a similar technique that we made in class. It is a high showpiece. The chef used clear casting sugar to make the ball stay between the two black things. It looks very elegant and it seems like the ball is flying in the air. In this showpiece, the chef using clear, yellow and black color to make the showpiece. I do like this showpiece. To me, it looks simple, nice and neat. But I think, it didn’t connect to the theme that much.
This showpiece is made by Liz Innes. It posts by the lady on twitter. On Twitter, her post said, “My pastillage and pulled sugar showpiece #sugarshowpiece #pastillade #swan #butterfly”. According to her words, the theme of this showpiece is swan and butterfly. The chef also used pastillage and pulling sugar to make the piece. This piece is looking like butterflies are flying on the swan and the swan is swimming somewhere near the flowers river. To me, this is a beautiful and sexy swam. The chef using white swam and pink butterflies and red flower. It looks beautiful and the color is balanced out. it looks very elegant and a sexy swam. So I love this showpiece.
This showpiece is made by a chef who calls Arianna Turdie. She posted this showpiece on her website. This chef made a lot of sugar and chocolate showpieces because she posted a lot of pictures on her website. She was inspired on the baking show on TV and decided to go to hospitality school. She started to work in the hospitality industry after graduating from school in 2014. This showpiece also using pulling sugar to make it. This is a very detail showpiece. It has a lot of detail things such as fishes, ocean water, plants, and seashells. I like this showpiece because it looks like real fishes swim in the ocean. The color of everything looks like real nature.

It is a very sexy heart showpiece. It looks like two people dancing in the middle. It does match the theme of Valentine. He made this showpiece by using the tempered chocolate technique. The color and the detail of this showpiece match the theme. Even though I do not look up the theme, I also think it is a showpiece that related to Valentine. I do love this showpiece.
