Choccy Woccy Rosezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

choccy woccy rosezzzzzzzzzYou know how it is…busy day…evening meal…sit sown for a few minuteszzzzzzzzzzzzz.

So I am a few hours late posting my thing for the 22nd…a chocolate rose.

This is my first attempt at making modelling chocolate.  I have used white chocolate and coloured it with paste food colour.

The biggest challenge for me is the fact that I have rather warm hands so I have a matter of seconds between the chocolate being too hard to shape and semi molten.  I have used latex gloves to isolate the heat of my skin from the chocolate as much as possible but it is still a challenge!

I do see a lot of possibilities using this substance though.  It is much quicker to make a chocolate rose than a sugarpaste or flower paste one and as it seems to colour so well there would be a lot of scope for making a fantastic array of flowers.  If I had known how easy it is to make it I would have been doing this years ago!!

And, of course, there is the fact that most people would far prefer to pop 30 grams (an ounce) of chocolate in their mouth and enjoy it than would chew their way through the same quantity of sugarpaste!!!

About solunarsilverstudio

I am the mother of 4 wonderful people and a grandmother of 5 but sadly, my oldest grandchild died after a road traffic accident in 2010. I have been married to my wonderful husband – and my best friend – since 1981. I have always been creative – for as far back as I can remember – and having spent many years as a ‘mature art student’ and finally graduating in 2007, I spent some time working on my own range of pure silver jewellery. Recent events called a halt to my silver work and in many ways my desire to do anything creative but I realise now that I need to be making things again. I am hoping that this year's Thing-a-Day will help me back onto the creative pathway.
