The cuisine artwork made by Ton Nu Thi Ha and her daughter Phan Ton Tinh Hai of the Mint Culinary School in Ho Chi Minh City was called ‘Phuong Hoang Vu-Bat Phong Hoi Dau’ (Royal Phoenix Cake).

It measured 6.8 meters in length and 4.2 meters in width and was made from more than 5,000 bamboo toothpicks that connected 4,862 items made from ingredients like mung bean, rice flour and vegetables and took 18 people more than three months to make.

The duo accomplished this artwork with original ingredients that were used by Tran Vien of the Hue Imperial Palace in 1925.

The work is well ahead of another work made in the 1920’s which was a replica design of a nine floor pagoda tower that was 1.5 meters in length and 1 meter in width, for the funeral of the Queen Mother Tu Cung.
