Michelle Wibowo celebrated a triumph in the Patisserie Showpiece section of the International Culinary Olympics. She cooked up a storm with a life-size hound dog-shaped sugar sculpture, which won her gold. It took Ms. Wibowo four days and 20kg (44lb) of sugar paste to make the dog. She got the inspiration from the Elvis song You Ain't Nothing But A Hound Dog.
