A Perth chef has created a 28kg sculpture of an exotic dragon made entirely from margarine

Angela Stanfield, who works as an apprentice chef at Crown Perth, created the 28kg sculpture for an international culinary competition in Germany, reported WA Today. The sculpture is of a dragon with large feathery wings and a curled tail, crouching next to another sculpture of a gnarled tree with golden eggs sitting at its base.

The 20-year-old took part in the World IKA Culinary Olympics along with seven other chefs as part of the WA Youth Culinary team. Despite it being only her second attempt at the art of margarine sculpting, Ms Stanfield won a bronze medal for her creation.

Our state fairs only make butter cows, but they are full sized butter cows.
Seems like a waste of good butter.

In the early 1900s, The Ohio State University and the Dairy Processors of Ohio sponsored butter sculpting contests at the Ohio State Fair. The subjects of these contests were not restricted to specific things. In 1903, the first butter cow and calf were featured at the Fair, sculpted by A. T. Shelton & Company, distributors of Sunbury Co-Operative Creamery butter.
The first butter cow and calf were featured at the Fair in 1903. Eventually, the butter cow and calf found a permanent home in the Dairy Products Building which was built in the 1920s. New cow and calf sculptures are created each year, reflecting positive ideals and cultural trends in Ohio, and have become a Fair tradition.
