“Film Inspiration– A Christmas Carol
Marley’s at the Door” A Christmas Wish Baked by Michelle “Chef Mitchie” Curran, Las Vegas, NV USA
Written By Celeste Curran-Smith
The movie and scene I chose to re-create in edible medium is from the 2009 animated version of “A Christmas Carol”. As Ebenezer Scrooge returns to his home from his bleak & miserable work day he encounters his old business partner in place of his home’s door knocker. The scene from the animated version is INTENSE & SUSPENSEFUL! The first time I saw it I was startled and sunk lower into my seat!
With over 10 edible mediums, this project took nearly 26 hours to create. The stone built front of the house was a fun challenge, I carved each brick by hand and used 3 shades of petal dust to make it look aged. I wanted to capture every intricate detail possible in this project to make it realistic. By far, my favorite part is the snow. I love how the final pic allows you to sense how cold the stone is.
I’m very proud to have been asked to take part in this beautiful artistic collaboration. To know it will benefit the Make A Wish Foundation, completely humbles me.”
