Learning to mould chocolate. Start with an egg.

After almost a month of entremets we move to working with chocolate.

The first lesson begins by learning to temper and cristalise chocolate. Once the chocolate is tempered we start by creating chocolate eggs by pouring the chocolate into egg moulds. In the second lesson we create decorative chocolate eggs by piping chocolate in spirals into the egg moulds. We complete our egg creations by dusting over some colour.

Learning to work with chocoalate and merely understanding its behaviour (whilst working with it) is quite challenging. Therefore, it can be frustratiing, tedious and long to work with. However, once you begin to assemble your moulds to create pieces, such as designer easter eggs, the personality of your work starts to take form and it can be quite amusing and satisfying. You just have to take a look at the photos below of some of our creations.

All this work is leading up to work with a final egg project.
