A whole new world opened up to me yesterday.
...they're made from CHOCOLATE! Chocolate, people!!!
I'd heard of "modeling chocolate" before, and always thought it sounded intimidating. You guys, it's pretty easy!
Of course, my chocolate petunia flowers aren't perfect, but I'm pretty excited about how they turned out...especially for my first time!
You might remember me telling you about the Ultimate DIY Bundle. One of the ebooks is Cake Decorating with Modeling Chocolate by Kristen Coniaris. To say I'm inspired is an understatement. This ebook is filled with the recipes, instructions, troubleshooting, and a whole host of decorating tutorials.
TODAY is the last day to purchase the Ultimate DIY Bundle.Don't forget that along with the over 70 ebooks from modeling chocolate (where I leared to make these petunias) to photography to sewing (and more!), you'll get to chose a FREE Craftsy class (from 15 of their most popular courses). I picked the Artisan Bread Making course with (James Beard Award Winner!) Peter Reinhart.
Let's look at those chocolate petunias again.
I attached them to my mocha cut-out cookies (recipe in Decorating Cookies Party). I love the way the flowers pop against the dark background!
I wonder how I'm going to pack one of these in kiddo's lunchbox tomorrow? ;)
OK kids. You're almost out of time. Scoop up that Ultimate DIY Bundle by midnight tonight.
