Chocolate festival features bust of President Trump

ISTANBUL (AP) — One of the highlights at a Turkish chocolate festival has been U.S. President Donald Trump — made of cake icing.

It took Turkish chef Tuba Geckil two days to make the imposing bust of Trump, clad from mid-torso in an edible jacket and striped tie.

Geckil said Saturday she crafts her concoctions after following media coverage and Trump, of course, has been in the news a lot.

Her other icing sculptures at the festival at Istanbul’s military museum include John Lennon, Nelson Mandela and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Merkel was a particular challenge, taking Geckil about three weeks to complete, partly because the sugary but stern sculpture includes an outstretched arm and pointed finger.

Geckil displayed her Merkel creation at an international culinary exhibition in Germany last year.

Butterbeer ice cream hitting shelves for Harry Potter fans

ORWIGSBURG, PA (AP) — A Pennsylvania ice cream maker is courting Harry Potter fans with a new flavor based on Hogwarts’ favorite drink, “butterbeer.”

Yuengling’s Ice Cream notes that J.K. Rowling once described butterbeer as tasting “a little bit like less sickly butterscotch.” With that in mind, Yuengling’s says the new butterbeer variety combines buttercream and butterscotch ice cream. Yuengling’s says “the result is magical decadence that will transport you to another place and time.”

President David Yuengling says the company hopes it made Rowling proud with the flavor.

Butterbeer may be a good fit for Yuengling’s. The ice cream company began as an offshoot of the well-known Pennsylvania brewery during the prohibition years. It’s now a separate company.

Man gored by deer he and his wife had raised

ROANOKE, Va. (AP) – Virginia wildlife officials say a member of the Giles County Board of Supervisors was hospitalized after being attacked by a deer.

Department of Game and Inland Fisheries spokesman Lee Walker say Paul “Chappy” Baker was attacked by a nine-point buck outside his home earlier this week.

The buck gored Baker’s lower legs and arms and caused bruises, cuts and lacerations. Walker says the attack, which lasted about 10 minutes, ended when Baker’s wife shot and killed the deer with a pistol.

The Roanoke Times reports (http://bit.ly/2nU23KA ) that officials collected a brain sample from the deer, but that Walker confirmed Friday that the deer was not rabid.

Walker said the Bakers had raised the buck since it was a fawn, which had been around the home for four years.
