Matilda - Karen Geraghty

The Trunchbull


I was instantly drawn to Miss Trunchbull and was lucky enough to be given her to recreate in edible format.  I don’t often get the opportunity to make grotesque villainous characters and I relish and seize the chance when it comes around.  I chose to re-create the scene where Miss Trunchbull uses a girl’s hair to hurl her through the air like a hammer throw.  It depicts her bullish nature, her vileness and her infliction of outrageous punishments on Crunchem Hall's pupils.  I love the fact that Miss Trunchbull is a uniquely detestable character in Roald Dahl’s novels and a villain that readers of all ages can hate.
