This week’s episodes of SugarStars definitely took the cast out of their elements. The first, called Fishin’ for Golfballs, required the team to assemble two sweet tables: one for a golf-themed sports show and another for a sport-fishing event. Yolanda, Elle, Caspar and Antonella were hard at work creating a sweet twist on breakfast foods for the golf-themed party, which included desserts like bacon-topped brownies, chocolate-dipped waffles, and brown sugar sand traps. The team was also set to create a golf ball-shaped cake and at the last minute, their clients requested two more! So stressful! Luckily, Yolanda came through (like she always does) and the results were a hit.
When it came to the fishing-themed sweet table, the SugarStars created mini buckets of cookie crumble dirt with gummy worms, and the showstopper: a cake in the shape of salmon. The sweet table in its entirety was nothing short of incredible. What was your favourite part of this episode’s sweet tables?
In the next episode, Russian Royals & Dragon Spoils, the team made an edible window display for George R. R. Martin, the author of the best-selling book, “A Game of Thrones.” The SugarStars created three amazing dragon cakes inspired by the novel. The sweet table featured yummy treats such as shards of rustic chocolate fudge and delicious berry pies.
The other request in this episode required Yolanda, Elle, Caspar and Antonella to do something out of their comfort zone and create a moving sweet table for the Russian Winter Palace Ball. The event was to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Russia’s historical victory over Napoleon in the War of 1812. A Russian imperial crown sat atop a traditional Napoleon slab cake, and the sweet table told the story of the epic battle. Insane, right? Would you want to have a moving sweet table at your next event, or is it just too risky?
This episode of SugarStars was rooted in history and the results were incredible. What did you think of these sweet tables?
