You’re looking at the one picture I took today, and it’s a bad one, too. Today was not one of my best days. This week we are building chocolate showpieces. I’m not sure how I feel about chocolate and sugar sculpture yet. I’m not overly excited by it, and it all seems a bit daunting. I have no experience in this whatsoever. I think it’s important to have a good attitude, which I’m trying to have. We had to make several parts of the sculpture today by pouring tempered chocolate into molds, rings, and domes.
I had to make four of the elements over again because I messed up. My dome wasn’t thick enough because I poured out the chocolate too early. My bases weren’t thick enough, either. Then I ran out of time and didn’t get to finish my white chocolate curls. I’m hoping tomorrow is a better day.
Now I’m thinking happy thoughts to make myself feel better.
