Come On, Spring. Hop To It!
Anyone else feeling swamped? 😄
I could use a little more sunshine and this spring chocolate sculpture is a celebration of the longer, warmer days ahead. After a long day getting my hands dirty in chocolate, I'm ready to come home and get my hands dirty in the garden. It's a real struggle to keep my fingernails clean.
I'm proud of this sculpture which features a couple new techniques.
- The lily pad is made by dipping a balloon in tempered chocolate, letting it dry, and then popping the balloon to release the shape. More details will be coming to the blog soon.
- The water was an exercise in marbling different shades of colored cocoa butter. It's possible I went overboard, but can you blame me? It was so much fun.
