Hello! Welcome back to chocolate sculpture week. I feel like this week is going to be boring for you all. There’s not a whole for me to say, or for you to read. We work on a couple of elements for the sculpture every day, and then Friday we piece it together.
Today, we made chocolate rose petals using a special tool that kind of looked like a large round cookie cutter. We thinly spread the chocolate out onto the table, let it set for a little while, then scraped the chocolate up using the cutter. I definitely don’t have the hang of it yet.
We also made “leaves” by painting dyed cocoa butter on some acetate, then covering it in white chocolate. Then we put big blobs of chocolate on top. ( Not pictured!)
I also worked on these white chocolate pieces that I didn’t get to do yesterday. It’s white chocolate blended until dough-like, then rolled out.
Sorry to make this short and sweet but I have a job interview/stage downtown tomorrow at 6:00 AM! That’s uhh, very early for me.
