in the competition under the Armenian flag.

The World Culinary Olympics is organized once in four years by the
World Association of Cooks.
Vera first participated in the Olympics in 2004 and won the silver.
"It was my dream to represent Armenia at the Olympiad and with a gold
medal," she told reporters in Yerevan.
It took her about two months to create the sugar figure of the
Ice-Age-figure 'Scrat.' Vera got 100 points out of 100 possible.
