Melted Chocolate Fairy

Day 8 – Melted Chocolate Fairy

8

A simple but effective technique for creating edible shapes!

I initially melted white chocolate to do the silhouette and thought to add milk chocolate for some details. This led to the food colouring coming out and me experimenting with colouring the white chocolate for the dress and shoes (they are supposed to be pink).

I put each variant of the melted chocolates in separate piping bags and traced the image of a fairy on some acetate using each colour for different parts of her body. I ended up doing her wings individually with some more tempered chocolate so they were shiny. This took about 10-15 minutes to set in the freezer, but I kept it in the fridge for another half an hour before I tried to remove them from the acetate to avoid any casualties.
