The sweet cake busts of the German Chancellor and the US President attracted the most attention: guests of the festival enjoyed taking selfies with the delicious dignitaries, as Turkish media reported.
"I wanted to draw attention to Merkel's personality. The finger extended forward is her distinctive gesture; and I wanted to demonstrate her harsh temper," Geçkil told local media.
It took the confectioner a month to make the cake in the form of the German Chancellor, while "edible Mr. Trump" was ready in just two days. The hardest part in the Merkel-style cake was the hair and eyelashes, Geçkil explained.

Festival organizer Orhan Saatçıoğlu noted that the main goal of the festival was to introduce visitors to chocolate culture: "The culture of chocolate comes to us from the West, and our goal is to cultivate this culture in our country. The visitors of the festival were able to discover new tastes here. We also held various entertainment events and competitions during the festival."
Saatçıoğlu also shared his plans to make this festival a tradition and transform it into a bright carnival within three years.
