1st Prize Chocolate Showpiece

The contestants, from various chocolate shops and patisseries around Australia, arrived early in the morning, and from the outset the competition was fierce. As the competition was drawing to a conclusion the room was very tense. Some ambitious centerpieces to adorn the top of the showpiece were showing signs of giving way under the weight.

Fortunately, there was no major catastrophes and each of the contestants managed to get their showpiece up in time.

The winner was Santiago Cuyugan, for his highly detailed ‘bird in a cage’ showpiece. Judges Paul Kennedy (Savour Chocolate & Patisserie School), Deniz Karaca (Cuvee by Deniz Karaca) and Tim Clark (Cacao Fine Chocolates & Patisserie) were

highly impressed at the level of detail, engineering and overall chocolate skill that was executed.

Second prize, missing out on first by only a fraction, was Hieu Ho, who created a beautiful colorful showpiece, fully showcasing the theme with a remarkably crafted Easter egg.

Overall, it was a successful competition, allowing talented individuals the opportunity to showcase their skills to a large audience and potential employers.

The Top 6 Easter Egg Showpieces were displayed at the Crown Melbourne Complex.
