Casting Challenge 2007
Hosted by the Art Institute of Atlanta the idea behind the first event was simple enough; give seven pastry students the same ten molds and instruct the students to use the molds in as many different ways as possible to create a sugar showpiece and a chocolate amenity. Their skill, creativity and commitment would be the only variables. Together with their assistants they came prepared and went to work.

The camaraderie, innovative techniques and new ideas flowed. In two five-hour sessions the students were judged on their creative use of the molds, kitchen skills, degree of difficulty, artistic value, originality and fulfillment of the competition's theme "Modern Nature."
