Paul Joachim, Food Network Challenge winner and International celebrity chef, is planning a spectacular tribute to Miami, Florida sports.    Paul will be sculpting a basketball player life-size, all 6' 8 of him, out of chocolate and cake live at the Miami Fine Chocolate and Food Show March 9th and 10th. Paul, a huge Miami sports fan himself, is known for creating life-size sculptures of people live while interacting and story telling with the audience at special events and parties.    

The basketball player will be sculpted jumping into the air, back arched, ready to slam dunk the basketball in cake and chocolate reaching over nine feet tall and weigh over 200 pounds. The base will be him jumping out of a basketball arena exploding through the ceiling with edible flames. This will be his 11th life-size piece and has teamed up with Davis Chocolate to create this incredible edible sculpture. Davis Chocolate has developed a special chocolate formula specific to Paul's extreme needs to sculpt outside in the Miami heat to hold up to the humidity and other outside elements.
