Last Saturday morning, we posted a photo of our Avatar cake on our facebook page. It was newly completed and not even the client had seen it yet. Therefore, we only showed the back of the head of the Avatar figure (see below). We didn't think at the time people would confuse the figure of Jake Sully with Neytiri, until people started posting comments and guessing which of the two of it was. We knew who it was and had not thought about that angle of mystery and quite enjoyed watching people guess who it was. For the person who said "I'll take Jake Sully for $200", you and the many others who guessed Jake, are the winners!
Rick sculpted the "Jake Sully" Avatar cake for Tristan, a little boy about to turn eight and was obsessed with the movie Avatar. Had Tristan been a Trista, it could very easily have been a Neytiri in these photos. The Avatar cake was a difficult one to create. It was a character based on a real human, and perfectly blend the realistic with fantasy. It's an iconic character that must be instantly recognizable. Rick's Avatar cake is all cake and everything is hand crafted and painted. It was incredibly realistic and dimensional looking in person. It blew away our clients and we were very happy with it. We only wish we could have seen the expression on Tristan's face when he saw it!
