Las Vegas: "The Bride" Bridal Shower Cake

This is a cake!  The bride has come to life in this spectacular (and edible!) sculpture by Jean Philippe Patisserie.  You can see more of Jean Philippe's creations online here, select the "Dolls" option.

The cake revolves in a display case (at the Jean Philippe Patisserie in the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas) so that guests can admire the work from all sides.    

The patisserie (where I indulged in this) has a video playing on a monitor that shows his skilled staff making the chocolate creations that are available in the shop.  Watching it was like sitting in on a chocolates class and I watched the whole presentation - candies moving down a conveyor belt under a wide ribbon of chocolate, an artist painting the side of a cake, a white chocolate mum being formed, petal by petal, out of individual pieces (comma-shaped smudges) of white chocolate.  I loved it.  

Maybe I should take a class in working with chocolate
