The Giant Sugar Mouse

2003

Following on from my icing obsession I made a giant sugar mouse. I was very kindly sponsored by Napier Brown, Supercook and Asda. He weighed over 30kg, and became a beautifully embarrassing, obese, shy creature. I think we can all feel like that at times. Once he was made, I wheeled him on a trolley on a tram for 10 miles to Altrincham to a nursery. There the under-threes ate, poked, drew, played and destroyed him. I like to think about what memories remain from that day in those young minds.
